Some time ago, I participated in some interviews, combining theory and practice. In addition, we have to study and summarize the characteristics of everything we do, and do a combing. The article is long, purely summary, and a bit dry to read. The reference value for job seekers is relatively large, and it also has some effect on interviewers.
PS: I interviewed an Internet product manager. The details are slightly different from other positions (for example, there will be a BOSS face), but the whole is the same.

A few tips for interviewers
1. Rediscover the value of interviews
It turned out that the interview is a process before entry, just like an exam.
It's only recently that I've come to realize that interviewing has a lot of value, which may be overlooked by many people.
For job seekers, the most direct Latest Mailing Database value is to understand the company, its products, the industry in which the company is located, the company's team, etc., and to judge whether the company meets their needs.
Beyond that, what else?
1. Know your market level
To put it bluntly, it is to help yourself realize your salary level.
Take a few offers, you will find that the difference is not very big, this is your own market level. After staying in one place for a long time, you may not know what the salary should be in line with your level. The interview will tell you.
2. Evaluate yourself more comprehensively and in-depth to discover strengths and weaknesses
First of all, an interview is really a comprehensive assessment of a person.
Let's take a look at the 3-round interview setup for a product manager:
These 3 rounds of interviews can comprehensively evaluate a person's ability:
In HR, it depends on whether the personality and concept are suitable for the enterprise.
Professional, to see if the professional ability meets the needs of the job.
On the BOSS level, evaluate a person more comprehensively, focusing on evaluating potential.
In our life, we are very lack of such opportunities to be systematically evaluated. If we can’t reflect on ourselves from time to time, and if we can’t continue to learn, it is easy to be in a state of ignorance like boiling a frog in warm water. This is how the little white rabbit in the workplace develops.
So when the interview is over, a summary is also required. Because during the interview process, you will always find that some questions are not answered well enough, and you will always find that you are lacking in some aspects.
Generally speaking, after the interview, I will focus on the following points:
Questions that are not answered well enough
About the company
About the interviewer
Second, the interview is free to help job seekers conduct in-depth assessments.
Companies interview job candidates, in fact, it costs money. In other words: job seekers get paid services for free.
Simple calculation: If a product manager is successful in the interview, it needs to go through 3 rounds.
HR side, it takes 20 minutes, about 20 yuan (calculated based on HR monthly salary of 1W, working 24 days a month, 8 hours a day)
Professional, it takes 40 minutes, about 100 yuan (calculated based on the monthly salary of the product director 3W, working 24 days a month, 8 hours a day)
BOSS face, it takes 20 minutes, about 150 yuan (calculated based on BOSS monthly salary of 9W, working 24 days a month, 8 hours a day)
Just a simple calculation of labor costs, but also about 300 yuan. If the other party's salary is higher, the interview cost may be several times the 300 yuan.
In fact, it takes a lot of brain cells to help people do in-depth evaluation. This matter itself is very valuable, and we are very short of such opportunities in life.
Especially in the adult society, everyone speaks politely, very few people can point out our shortcomings, and there are no people who can evaluate us deeply and systematically.
