The job interview is a meeting between two parties. One is seeking an individual to fulfill a certain role in that organization. The other strives to show they have the skills and knowledge to meet that need. Questions may be asked to measure the response of the job seeker and observe how they answer.A candidate that handles the job interview well shows their potential.
