Several people have tried to lie to her in the past by writing false information on their CVs
Musk now knows how to foil this ploy. He mentioned at a conference that he asks the candidate “to tell about the biggest problems he had to face and how he went about solving them”.
According to a study, it is possible to see if a person is telling the truth when they have to give detailed information about their professional experience.
The 49-year-old adds that he is not interested in the university degrees of his candidates or their educational level, reports the daily “Daily Stars”.
“They don’t even need to have a diploma, or even high school,” he said in an interview in 2014.
The billionaire explains that he is rather looking for people with “exceptional qualities, who are out of the ordinary” when he seeks to hire someone.
Musk recently became the richest person on the planet with a fortune of $ 172.8 billion, according to Forbes magazine.
