Google’s Ex-VP Shares Top Skill Required At Job Interviews

In an interview with CNBC Google’s former VP shared that the top skill required at job interviews is self-awareness.

Claire Hughes Johnson spent 10 years at Google as a vice president where she oversaw aspects of Gmail, Google Apps, and consumer operations. Her role required her to spend almost 40 hours a week conducting job interviews. Recently, she opened up about the top skill she looked for in prospective Google employees.

“I always had one skill that I looked for in candidates before anything else: self-awareness,” Johnson told CNBC. “Sure, your experience and skills matter, but they can be learned. And when someone is highly self-aware, they’re more motivated to learn because they’re honest about what they need to work on. They also relate better to their colleagues and managers.”

In a strategy update event focused on software held in California, Mercedes-Benz unveiled a Google partnership to include supercomputers in its cars.
