I had two roles in an interview. One was what makes this person special like that was my job to find out what about this particular person made them special because every single person has something that's unique and wonderful that makes them special. And then the second part was was that a good fit for whatever role that I was was tasked with filling because often it was like, this is a really special person, but not for what I need. Right? Like this. It doesn't fit now. It may be for somewhere else in the company, or it may be even. And I was very, very open with people that I talked to, I may say, because I had a huge network that was also outside of Amazon. I think you'd be a great fit for my friend who has a startup, right? Because in that interview process, my role was, How do I get this person to the next role that they're supposed to have, whether beyond my team and my company, or help them figure out that next step on their journey? So and that makes it a lot more fun, because I'm not saying no to you. I'm just saying, I don't see that this is a great fit based on what you have told me, right? So it's not me to say, like thumbs down like you're you know, you're not good enough. I mean, often it's just like what you want isn't what this particular role is going to be able to give you. So where do we find the role that's going to give you what you want or what you're looking for? And I feel like those conversations were just really fun because it was almost a sleuthing, right? I need to find what makes this person special, and then I need to figure out where they should go next, right? And, you know, with a suite of options available.
