    Welcome to another educational HR video on how to pass a job interview. What question can you ask at the end of an interview to help you get hired? Each tip addresses what recruiters look for. I also address ending an interview on the right note.

    I'm going to give you the best answer (from a former CEO).

    There is a big difference between what you learn in business school, and what you need to know in the real world – just ask any startup founder or business owner! My goal is to focus on the real-world aspects of business, giving practical tips and tricks that are not usually covered in school.

    This channel is a platform to help entrepreneurs and business owners succeed. It is also to help the world at large to be more effective and successful. The world can certainly use more inspiring leaders, more successful entrepreneurs, and more capable managers - that is what I would like to help bring about.

    Who Am I?
    I am a practicing management consultant, former CEO, and entrepreneur. I have led many businesses to success, as well as several startups. Among other things, I have an engineering degree, an MBA, a master's degree in finance, and a master black belt in lean six sigma.

    I have worked across five industries, and have worked in both large enterprise and small businesses. In the last five years, I have also been mentoring startup founders and teaching business at a post-graduate level.

    Why I Want To Involve My Community:
    The only way this channel will succeed is with YOUR help. In order to know how best to proceed, I need constant feedback from YOU. What topics should I cover? What challenges are you facing? What questions do you have? What changes should I make?

    Please contact me with questions, and I will try my best to help. Best of luck!

    Thank you for being here and reading this, and have yourself an amazing day!

  • The Employee That Made $72 Billion - The Story Of Steve Ballmer

    7:24

    Usually, billionaires get their wealth by growing massive international corporations and/or investing for decades. As a result, we wouldn't expect an employee who starts out making $50,000 per year to become a billionaire, but that's exactly what happened to Steve Ballmer. Steve Ballmer joined Microsoft in 1980 and received an 8% stake in Microsoft soon after, and this alone would eventually make him into a multi-billionaire. However, the vast majority of his wealth was made in the past few years after he retired as the new Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, was able to quintuple Microsoft's stock price skyrocketing Steve Ballmer to 70 billion dollars. This video explains the story of Steve Ballmer and how Steve Ballmer got so rich.
