Job Interviews and Dating Apps

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.
