6 questions interviewers ask to test if you fit the company culture

8 questions you need to ask during a job interview

When it comes to preparing for an interview, we all know to brush up on speaking about our skills and experience. But a job interview is also designed to help both parties decide if their personality matches the organisation and vice versa.

Learning what drives you in your professional life is important, but employers often want to dig deeper to find out what your personal motivations are. Your hobbies outside of work might also translate to soft skills you haven’t thought to highlight on your CV.
