Two days ago, the company recruited a product intern at the school, so I was asked to prepare some interview things to face this intern.
So I thought about doing this as a simple project to see how I was preparing for this interview with product thinking.
Understand the requirements
First of all, we use the user story model to express this need:
The company wanted to recruit a product intern, so I needed to prepare something as a product interviewer and then interview the intern so that I could decide whether to admit the student.
Based on the user story, we know what the general source of this demand is, and roughly what I want to do.
So we can simply define this requirement: interview a product intern!
Preliminary analysis of requirements
After understanding the general needs, it actually gives us a job and the general direction of effort. So then we have to analyze, whether this demand is reasonable, is there anything in it that we need to think deeply and query the data to understand?
Obviously, it is a simple interview, and there is no question of whether it can be done, a problem that is difficult to achieve, and there Latest Mailing Database seems to be nothing that needs deep thinking and analysis, but we just have to grasp a few keywords:
Obviously, the requirements are too simple to be so troublesome to decompose, but we can do some analysis based on the two keywords summarized above.
The first is the keyword "product", indicating that the interview position is a product manager, so for this position, I began to think about the lack of people in our current product positions? Is the work content of the product position saturated? Do product jobs need fresh blood to enter?
Okay, after an analysis, it seems that there is not a shortage of people... So I will deny this demand, obviously it seems too hasty, then I will analyze the second keyword.
"Intern" means that the person may not have much experience, and at this time, it is possible to analyze what characteristics, attributes, etc. an intern has in the form of a simple user portrait.
After the analysis, we found that although an intern has little experience, the cost of employment is not very high, that is to say, in the case of the company's economic permission, it is reasonable for us to recruit an intern.
So, I continued to tell the leader of the HR and product departments of my analysis, which means that our team is not very short of people for the time being, but if the company has money and has ideas in this regard, then you can ask this person to interview and see how it goes, Barabala's ~
The last message I got was: you can consider cultivating!
Implement the requirements
The feasibility of the requirements has been confirmed, so the next step is to start doing it.
According to the above user portrait, we know that the object of the interview is an inexperienced college student, so the interview is basically a face-to-face chat, and there is no written test and machine test. Therefore, we need to prepare relevant questions for this interview, so that the interview can better observe the ability and level of the candidate in all aspects.
Now the requirements are broken down from a simple interview to the preparation of the interview questions, so we continue to analyze and decompose the requirements at this step.
Step 1: List the keywords
For interns, I listed several characteristics that I thought were important, and added weight values to these features:
Step 2: Prepare the interview questions
According to the list of characteristics for the preparation of interview questions, it can be seen from the above list that for interns, I think the key ability is learning ability, followed by cultural fit and self-existence, and finally product thinking; That said, part of the interview is not focused on how much experience the person has with the product, but on how much learning and receptivity the person is in the moment, taking into account factors such as integration into the team and self-actualization.
The preparation of the topic focuses on the situation during the university by asking, and then combining some product-related questions.
