Dating apps are all the rage. Why? Because they help people find compatible partners. Each person has to agree to the compatibility of the other before a date, or possibly a relationship, ensues. This seems completely normal. So why do we subconsciously change the rules when dealing with our careers?
If statistics are right, your relationship with your next employer will last about 7 years. Shouldn’t you make sure it’s a good match for both of you? There is a perfect opportunity for this match making to happen: the job interview.
A job interview is an opportunity for you to assess how you can help the employer AND whether it’s a good fit for you as well. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, even tough ones. An employer worth your time will appreciate the seriousness with which you take the process.
