Interviews are a necessary evil.
Nobody likes giving an interview but it is a fact of life. Most people would not give an interview if they had a choice but they do not. Taking an interview on the other hand is always more fun. Granted I have never been on the other side of this exchange but it does sound and seem incredibly fun to hold all the power in your hands for once. And while you may be used to the old style of interviewing and employees not asking any questions, the times have changed.
People these days want to know what sort of environment they will be working in and they can’t find that out without asking a few critical questions. And that is where this particular Twitter user comes in. It all started when she asked the Internet to share their personal experiences of their interviews. As you might guess, people had a lot to say about their past experiences. And some people even had a lot of advice to give. So we decided to curate some of the best advice for interviews and shared them right here with you.
So scroll below to take a look for yourself and enjoy. You might even learn something new and useful.
