Jack Dorsey is a busy man.
With such a packed schedule, Dorsey likely doesn’t personally interview anyone but candidates for top positions at either Twitter or Square. But, when he does, there’s one question that’s most important, Dorsey revealed during a Q&A session on the site ProductHunt.
The question: Why Twitter? Or why Square?
“I look for passion,” he writes. “Only thing that can’t be taught.”
If he hears “passion for the purpose” in the answer to his “why” question, he’ll actually consider a candidate.
“Then I look for leadership and skill,” he continues. “Passion and purpose and principles first though!”
