A former Google HR exec says he's seen too many people make the same mistake trying to interview candidates for jobs

In a job interview, the interviewer may try to impress the candidate with how smart they are and trip them up with confusing questions. That's what Justin Angsuwat, vice president of people at Thumbtack and a former Google HR exec, has observed. Angsuwat said this approach may lead to unfair outcomes and a poor candidate experience. Job candidates typically spend a lot of time and energy thinking about ways to impress the interviewer: a spiffy suit, stellar references, and thoughtful answers ...

One More Thing About That New OLC Opinion on Syria

Although it’s hard not to let the news cycle completely overtake Friday’s release of the opinion of the Office of Legal Counsel on the constitutionality of the April airstrikes on Syria, the upcoming summit on North Korea, and the Administration’s apparent radical rethinking of Iran’s future post-JCPOA, makes it important not to let it go just yet. While I agree with much of Jack Goldsmith’s assessment of the opinion – which at its core adopts and applies the same standard for establishing th...

Because that law does not allow those offenders to earn good-time credits, Goldsmith ruled it is unconstitutional and ordered the s...

Artefacts of Language.

Peter Manson, a Scottish poet and translator, has a fine blog (and god bless the bloggers who keep stubbornly blogging despite the temptations of Facebook and Twitter); a couple of years ago he posted “An essay on poetry and language,” which starts with the proposition “All language is ambiguous” and quickly segues into a discussion of poetry (“Poetry is what happens when a reader can no longer refer a piece of language back to a speaker to unpack its ambiguities”). He describes Kenneth Goldsmi...

Six months later, Stride is now generally available to any and all teams that want to give it a try.

Forward Looking Feedback

Rekha was a new manager who got promoted to a team manager role based on her hard work and dedication. But like most first time managers, she was struggling to provide effective feedback to her team members. She would often give them feedback in front of the whole team, or would make the feedback sound so negative that it would do more damage than good to the individual concerned. Working with her as her coach, I realized that the feedback she was giving had a purpose and good intention, but the...
