during an interview,
the interviewer asked me for
more and more specifics
regarding what I’ve done for other clients.

I skated around her questions
until finally
I bluntly stated
that I kept all client information confidential.
Sharing specific information
meant sharing confidential information.
I was uncomfortable doing that.

They didn’t understand my thinking.
(And that concerns me
but that’s a whole other post)

Did they really want me
to tell competitors/vendors/the entire world
that the reason I was brought on board
was to find a couple million dollars
that has been missing since January?

Think about what you ask in interviews
and then imagine
your greatest business threat
asking that question of your former employee.
Would you want that question to be asked?
How specific would you want your employee to be?
