Want to identify job candidates with mettle? Give a “drill sergeant speech.”
Say, “This is the toughest, most gut-wrenching job you’ll ever have. You’ll work hard, then harder, and then you’ll want to come up for air. But you won’t be able to. You’ll feel scared, lost, alone and unsure if you’re going to survive.”
If the individual looks thrilled and asks gung-ho questions, you may have a winner.
