With unemployment continuing at historically low numbers, it’s up to employers to win sought-after candidates. During an interview, employers are likely ready for the culture question. When asked about culture directly, according to an article in Fast Company, interviewers are quick to offer pat or polished answers. Interviewees are being encouraged to dig deeper, asking more specific questions that require detailed answers. To wow and win the hire, be prepared to share about opportunities to give back, which might be expected, but also on some tough questions focused on things like recent achievements and how they were celebrated or company-wide learning gleaned from big challenges. Also get ready to talk about and show life at the office, with interviewees asking about what lunch time is like, what activities employees participate in, or even requesting a quick tour.
