People Discuss How to Turn the Tables on a Potential Employer in a Job Interview

Why do job interviews have to be so one-sided? I totally get that if you’re the one applying for the job, you’re naturally in a position to prove yourself. But that doesn’t mean you can’t feel out a potential employer on your end. Why not use the job interview as an opportunity to figure out whether or not you really want the position. In a Twitter thread prompted by @hodayum people discuss the sort of questions they ask during a job interview, such as, ‘why is this position open?’ and ‘what’s the culture like at this company?’ Answers to these sorts of questions could potentially reveal a lot about the employer. We’ve collected some insightful highlights from the thread that really changed our perspective on job interviews.
