We gravitated to her Spotify playlist.  For anyone else, it may have been her trendy outfit, room filling smile, and seemingly honest character that would make her a great fit for any company.  But her surprising list of 90s RnB jams (we mean SWV, Keith Sweat, and all) chosen during her interview was the cake and icing.

See, some months ago I met with an entrepreneur comrade for brunch.  We talked about work/life balance, POS systems, and hiring.  I always turned to my H&M days and recalled the fire hoops I made potential employees jump through before bringing them on.  The process allowed me to see just how much they wanted the job and how far they would push themselves to get it.  My friend suggested having an interviewee create a small playlist.  We agreed that music speaks to everyone and can sometimes be a mirror to a person’s spirit.

Fast forward, to Amma’s interview…
