Application question at Tesla: Almost everyone makes this mistake

Anyone who wants to score points with Elon Musk and his team as an applicant must convince with their previous performance - and less with their training, as he recently revealed.

However, according to Brown, applicants fail over and over again on the same seemingly simple question: 

"Tell me about your most important technical achievement, the project you are most proud of".

With this question it is

important to put

the

most important successes and achievements

in the foreground and to differentiate them from the less important.

But only very few succeed, as the former Tesla HR manager revealed in Fast Company magazine.

Most applicants would simply

pick the wrong project

.

"In my experience, most people's first instinct is to choose the project or service that

sounds best on paper,

" says the recruiter, but that is not always what best demonstrates the applicant's technical skills bring.

And makes them look bad on top of that.

Because if you have to admit when asked during the interview: "Somebody else was responsible for this part", you will quickly find yourself not a skilled person.

choose a project that you really know inside out

.

“This is your only

chance

 to say, 'I'm an expert on this particular thing - ask me about it.'
