Want to Work for Facebook? You May Have to Answer This Question First

In an interview with Business Insider, the VP of People Operations at Facebook said this question was a favorite to ask potential future employees

Those interested in working for Facebook may have to answer one question before landing the job:

"On your very best day at work, the day you come home and think you have the best job in the world, what did you do that day?"

In an interview with Business Insider, Lori Goler, the vice president of People Operations at Facebook, said this question was a favorite to ask potential future employees.

"People want to have an impact," Goler told Business Insider. "They want to know that what they're working on matters. And they're going to stay at a place where they feel like they have an impact, [where] they're learning and growing and doing work they love."

The purpose of this question is to find out what applicants feel passionate about and if their goals align with the company’s, according to the report.

Not every candidate will be asked this question, according to Business Insider. Applicants must first make it through multiple phone interviews and take a tour of Facebook’s facility, but then the question might come up.

Miranda Kalinowski, Facebook’s global head of recruiting, told Business Insider that the company also looks for three characteristics in applicants. They search for builders, workers who have diverse backgrounds, and those with talent and the ability to fit into Facebook's culture.
