Based on the promotion defenses I participated in myself, the promotion defenses I took with my teammates, and what I heard as a judge and all kinds of gossip, I summarized the questions raised by the judges. Looking at all kinds of things, in fact, there are email list five common types of questions: what do you do? How are you going to do it, and how do you actually do it? Have you achieved results and what are your next plans? They correspond to goals, methods, execution processes, completion results and next-step planning . It's just that in the Internet factory, there are two more characteristics, one is like to ask "why", the other is like to ask "data". For example, after asking what the goal is, continue to ask why this goal was obtained, and after asking what the method is, continue to ask why this method was obtained; another likes to ask about data, such as asking what your process indicators are, What are your outcome metrics and so on. Why do you like to ask "why"? I think an important reason is that the judges need to judge whether the candidate has both thought clearly and achieved it, or whether he has not thought clearly but won. Liying to win means that it is possible that the entire team has a good project and achieved good results. The candidate is on the big boat of the team and "rubbed" with the team to achieve some small results, but he doesn't know anything about it. Asking "why" can help identify people who "know but don't know why". This type of question is asking why and how, focusing on the background and process, which is more difficult than asking what. It’s easy to understand why you like to ask about data. Compared with traditional enterprises, the Internet has a core advantage of digitizing the entire chain of products and services. Rapid iteration based on data feedback is also a generally recognized work method. The judges should use these questions to check whether candidates have data awareness and whether they are truly data-driven in the actual work process. Finally, Internet companies like to refer to methods as strategies or tactics, and to refer to the implementation process as a high-level word such as roadmap, so that questions can be more "professional". So in summary, the judges' questions = 5 basic questions + 2 characteristics ( in fact, these are also written in the promotion materials ) . Let's disassemble each type of questions and the key points of the answer one by one.
