Yesterday’s The Corner Office column in The New York Times has an interesting interview with Helene D. Gayle, the CEO of CARE U.S.A., an anti-poverty group. The interviewer asked Bryant what two questions she would ask in a job interview if she could only ask two. Bryant’s responses offer some insight for attorneys.
Question No. 1: What brings you the most happiness in life? Why ask that? Her answer: “[U]sually the things that bring you the most happiness in life are also the things that bring you the most happiness at work.
Question No. 2: What are the things that bring you the most displeasure in life? Why ask that? Same reason as with question No. 1. So, lawyers, how would you answer the questions?
