    No replies here? Can we say 'pass' for an answer in the job interviews?

    I'm quite sure that the question won't be asked to a fresh graduate engineer applying to a job.

    If I were asked that question in an Interview - I'd say, "How'd I know?" 😁

    There are no right or wrong answers, actually.

    "The same reason, why you are hiring here". 😎

    if interviewer discuss, the final answer:
    "If you have only promoted your employees , Only founder would be in your company."
