Elon Musk is now one of the richest men in the world. At the heart of this success is, of course, his company Tesla, whose market capitalization continues to climb. “The Sky is the Limit” as the English speakers say to describe how the carmaker’s growth prospects are now making one dizzy. While the company will propose changes for the 2021 Model S and Model X and its whimsical boss has confirmed the arrival of a van and even a surprise

, a surprising anecdote has just been revealed about Elon Musk.

Elon Musk facing fake resumes

Like any boss, Elon Musk is not at the mercy of a candidate who glorifies his resume a bit or a little genius/escrow modeled on Frank Abagnale Jr. the character played by Leonardo Di Caprio in the movie Stop Me If You Can

. Elon Musk even knows that candidates have tried to scam him like this in the past.

But at a conference, he revealed his “infallible” method to find out if a candidate is trying to lie to him. Just ask a question. Always the same one. The candidate must “tell him the biggest problems he faced and how he solved them”. According to Elon Musk, when a candidate has to describe something so personal, with detailed information, you can see right away if they are lying or trying to embellish their story.

In 2014, Elon Musk also revealed that in his selection process, he doesn’t look at college degrees or resumes. Instead, he looks for people who demonstrate “exceptional qualities that are out of the ordinary.”
