Someone told me about his new company where they do entrance interviews. In contrast to an exit interview, the objective is to get a download of potentially innovative ideas when someone starts a job, before there's time to develop a point of view biased by the company's culture.

What a great strategic thinking approach!

Given the current hiring market, entrance interviews may have limited applicability right now. It's a wonderful idea though for increasing the diversity of an organization's creative learning during the narrow window when a new employee is approaching things from a completely fresh perspective. - Mike Brown
