A job interview should be viewed as a two-way street. As a candidate, you should be interviewing the company just as much as they are interviewing you. I’ve had friends, family and colleagues all end up in the wrong job because they didn’t ask the right questions before they started. Be the candidate posing original questions of the hiring manager instead of merely answering all the questions you’re asked. It may seem a bit intimidating, but this out-of-the-box strategy not only benefits the candidate, who can show that he or she has done their research and knows what they’re doing. It could very well impress a potential employer who will see initiative and promise. Avoid surprises and check out these interview questions so you’ll not only get a job offer, you’ll also know whether or not to accept.

Before you lawyer up, hit the gym and delete Facebook (not necessarily in that order), it might be best to change your mind set about what an interview is really designed for. It’s not an interrogation, instead it’s a chance for you and people at a company to meet up and see if there’s any connection. Sure, first dates are nerve-wracking too, but you’re not just worried about whether the person likes you – you’re also worried about liking the other person. Don’t forget, companies don’t hire people, people that work at companies hire people, so often the best qualified or most skilled person loses out to someone that’s more likeable. The problem is most people hide too much of themselves away in an interview and it’s impossible for many hiring managers to form an opinion if you’re likeable or not! Oops.
