One day, Apple wanted to hire a senior financial officer, and the competition was fierce.
The vice president of the company placed an apple with festering spots, some trademarks with large nails, and a fruit knife in front of each examinee. He asked the candidates to deal with the apple in front of them within ten minutes, that is, to hand in the answers to the exam.
The vice president explained that Apple represents the company's image, and there are no special requirements on how to deal with it. Ten minutes later, all candidates handed in their "exam papers."
After reading the "examination papers", the vice president said: "The reason why there is no examination of in-depth professional knowledge is because the professional knowledge can be learned in future practice. Who is more in-depth cannot be judged at this moment. What we pay attention to is, The ability to react to complex things and how to deal with them." The
vice president picked up the first batch of apples. These apples looked intact, except that the festering area was covered by the affixed trademark. The vice president said that any company has shortcomings and mistakes that are inevitable, just like the spots on Apple, which are covered with trademarks, covering up the mistakes but not correcting them. A small mistake can even cause the whole ulceration. . These applicants did not regard correcting the company's mistakes as their own responsibility and were eliminated.
The vice president picked up the second batch of apples. The spots of these apples were cut off with a fruit knife, and the trademarks were randomly pasted everywhere. The vice president said that this approach is correct to gouge the fester. However, after such a gouging, the image has been destroyed. This kind of applicants may think that as long as they correct their mistakes, everything will be fine. Without considering that image and credibility are the life of the company's development, these applicants have also been eliminated.
At this time, there was only one apple left in the vice president's hand. The apple was red and round, and it was intact! There are no trademarks on it either.
Vice president asked: "Who is this answer?" A candidate stood up and said:?. "My" "Where did it come from,"
the candidate from his pocket just sent his vice president and the apple Some trademarks said: “When I just came in, I noticed a fruit stand in front of the company. When everyone was working on the rotten apples in their hands, I went out and bought a new apple. Ten minutes is enough for me. Used it. When something cannot be saved, I choose to start again." The
vice president immediately announced: "You have been hired!"
It turns out that the answer to Apple’s recruitment is: You must stop the bad past in order to start again at any time. Life can start again at any time, there is no age limit, and there is no gender distinction. As long as we have determination and confidence, our dreams can be realized even at the age of seventy.
