10 Questions for John Schlicher
Senior Recruiter, Abercrombie & Fitch
Where are you right now?
At my desk, at the A&F Home Office, surrounded by empty coffee receptacles.
Your latest tech must have?
GPS. I have a miserable sense of direction, even though I pretend that I don't.
Your dream breakfast date?
Huevos rancheros. If I have to pick an actual human being rather than a food item, probably my 8-month-old son. Although the conversation is pretty one-sided at this point.
The best piece of interview advise?
Do your homework, put forth an effort, and stay off of your phone.
Your favorite subject at school?
Physics, but that doesn't imply that I was good at it.
A cause worth fighting for?
Education based on children rather than politics.
What are you reading right now?
Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy
Your favorite get away?
Thorndike Pond, in Jaffrey, NH. My family's been going up there during the summers for 3 or 4 generations now. It's out in the woods and disconnected and fantastic.
What was your first job?
If you could have a super power what would it be?
Anyone who doesn't pick the ability to fly is lying to themselves.
