Top job interview questions for managers

Let's have a look at some fascinating answers from the book of Genesis on top Job Interview questions for managers.

Genesis 1: 1 -3
The Beginning
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was [a] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

One of the top questions you may face during your job interview for a manageurial position is the following : "Tell me what is the most important quality of a leader" The book of Genesis answers this question.
The first thing God created after the heavens and the earth was the light. Light speaks of vision. The Scripture says that God is Light and in Him there is no darkness. God already had the light inside of him since He is Light.
But that light needed to be reflected upon the universe.

A leader must not only have the vision but he must communicate this vision to the people. This is very important. It is so important that we can see clearly the impact of its absence on the company.

The verse says that the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep.
Without a shared vision, there is confusion.
Without a shared vision, there is not much profit. The company cannot succeed.
When a company is in chaos, the first thing it needs is a management with a clear vision that is communicated and shared with the employees.

In the same way, you have to demonstrate to the hiring manager you have a vision for where you are headed and communicate clearly this vision during the job interview. One job interview question you may also face is : "where do you see yourself in 5 years or 10 years from now?" Without the light, without the vision, you cannot provide a clear and coherent answer. Instead, your answer will be "formless and empty".

Make sure all this is clear before you show up for the job interview. This is also true for the hiring manager. He/she should communicate clearly the vision of the company and which part the position plays in fulfilling that vision. When the vision is clear, you can separate the light from the darkness. You know which ones of the interviewees fit the vision best.

The candidate also knows which company/job fits best his own vision for the future, his own career aspiration. This is a win/win. So, get the vision for a successful job interview.
Get the vision to be able to answer properly to one of the top job interview questions.
