Get that job at Grab – Steve Yegge – Medium
How do you get the best possible signal from a 1-hour interview?

...

My friend Ken Fishkin has a saying about interviews: “Everyone gets one mulligan.” Meaning, every candidate is allowed to make one grave error, a mistake so bad that you wonder if hiring them might also be a grave error. But as long as it’s only one problem area, and everything else is fine, then Ken and I both generally let it slide.

...

I’ve decided over the years that being a good interviewer is like trying to be a good detective — you need to look for clues, and follow up on them, and construct a complete picture of the tragic crime scene which comprises the candidate’s abilities.

You’re not changing the world – Signal v. Noise
Set out to do good work. Set out to be fair in your dealings with customers, employees, and reality. Leave a lasting impressions on the people you touch, and worry less (or not at all!) about changing the world. Chances are you won’t, and if you do, it’s not going to be because you said you would.
