recruiting after a crisis

Once hiring restarts after the current recession, recruiters will have a whole new set of great questions to ask on interviews:
- What did you do when you lost your previous job? What did you do 3 days, 6 days, 2 weeks later?
- How did you feel about the situation? What did you learn from it?
- How do you feel about this pause in your career now, looking back? Is it more like a surprise gift from life, or a torture, a horrid nightmare? What where the good and bad things about it?

As we all know, people who are capable of success, do not grief failure, but learn from it, quickly spot the new opportunities and move on.

In a post-crisis world, it is easy to spot such people, if you are after them.
