The answer (to the above question) depends upon whom you are asking this question. But, for the sake our discussion, I will tackle this question from a business owner’s point of view—also because I do not want any political controversy on this blog.
For a business owner, outsourcing any business process that is not its core is a not good but great strategy. I am not saying this to put bread on a family’s table in a third-world country, I am saying this because doing things that you are not good at will cost you doubly— (a). You will not be able to produce quality work, (b). And you will end up wasting time that could be invested on doing things that you are best at.
I do not play baseball nor do I play golf. I even do not know their terminologies. How do you think I will fare, if I take a baseball bat or club in my hand? I may hit a home run by fluke, but I cannot repeat it. So, if I were wise, I would have played chess or cricket, instead of going for baseball or golf. By not doing so, I have not only made fool of me, but I also end up wasting precious time I should have invested on games that I know.
It holds true for business processes as well. If you are a programmer who has started a small company, or if you are an existing small business owner that is good at manufacturing and marketing then you should outsource designing, SEO, marketing works to outside vendors whose core competencies lies in these fields. They will do better job at significantly lower cost. And the cost incurred will be even less, if you outsource your work to the third-world countries.
Did you say quality? Don’t worry, not everyone is bad there.
Above, I have just a few of the benefits. I do not claim here to know all the benefits, and I am sure, you can suggest countless more benefits of outsourcing. Why do not you post your comment here?

If only you knew this…
This is what every jobseeker feels, and you believe it or not, you already know the answer. You know what an interviewer wants to know about you. You just seem to overlook them under the pressure of backbreaking labor that you put in to straighten everything up, so that you get selected for the job. You would not have worried too much for the job, if you knew that your interviewer wants to know only three things from you. But, what are those 3 things that an interviewer wants to know? Read this article through the end to find the answer to this question.
This is the first concern of an interviewer. He asks you so many questions related to your education, experience, and past companies only to know if you can do the job he is offering or now. He is least interested in what all you did with your life, so do not tell him all. Just talk about things that will add value to his company should you are hired. This also shows how focused are you.
Will you go along with the team easily or not is another thing that your interviewer wants to know. No one wants to hire anyone who cannot work in a team, or who cannot learn to adapt to situations that are not of their choosing. That is why questions related to curricular activities, volunteer organization, and roles played and responsibilities taken in previous companies are asked.
No one wants to pay an employee more than what he or she is worth. Charging a little extra is ok, but asking for way more than what one deserves raises the red flag. You need to be careful when telling him your expected salary. And when you quote your salary, do not forget to add what all you will do for the company, and how do you think hiring you on that salary will be a good deal for the company. Tell the interviewer you are worth every penny you are asking for, as you can earn 10 folds return of the salary you are getting from the company.
These are the only things your interviewer is interested in knowing. All the questions asked during an interview are done with a hidden motive of finding these things.
