How to Hire a Go-Getter

Ask the following questions to identify the job candidates who are most able to handle a hectic, deadline-driven workday:

• "Tell me about the last time you felt as if you were in over your head. Was it the changing priorities at work that made you uncomfortable, or was there some other reason?"
• "How many balls do you have in the air at any given time, and how hectic
a pace are you used to working at?"
• "Do you prefer to tie together all the loose ends of project A before you move on to project B, or do you typically jump from project A to M, and then back to A if time permits? Tell me how a situation like that actually played out in the past."
