Business Insider recently spoke to Miranda Kalinowski, Global Head of Facebook recruiting and VP of people Lori Goler to discuss the company’s hiring process.
They both mentioned that there was one question that they like to ask in job interviews:
“What are you doing on your best day?”
“Typically, if we find out about their best day, we can unpack that and really find out what drives them and motivates them,” Kalinowski says. “Whether it’s meeting with clients, coding, or calculating a spreadsheet, it’s going to be different for everyone. That’s the beauty of bringing all these people together.”
She notes that you should be prepared for this question, regardless of whether or not you’re specifically looking into jobs at Facebook. It’s also a good way to prepare yourself for the next step in your career.
“Step back and reflect on the things you enjoy doing,” Goler says. “On your very best day, when you go home and you think to yourself, ‘I have the best job ever,’ what were you doing on that day? What were the actual activities that you engaged in on that day? Those are things you should be looking for in your next opportunity.”
