While watching an interview with the CMO of Nykaa, Mr. Hitesh Malhotra, he mentions his style of recruiting the best marketeers, and I was stunned. He conveyed that he doesn’t ask only job-related questions. He always starts the interview with general questions like “What’s your opinion about upcoming elections?” That is where your worth is valued by the outer world. School, College, or Corporate, your presence is valued on the basis of your knowledge and opinion of the current affairs.
