The pandemic has changed so many things about how we do our jobs, including the job search process itself. This week, Fast Company writer Stephanie Vozza takes a close look at how COVID-19 has changed the types of questions you may get asked in your next job interview.

"Standard interview questions like 'Where do you see yourself in five years?' and 'Tell me about a time when you had to overcome a challenge,' have taken on new meaning after going through the pandemic," writes Vozza. " For many of us, the collective experience has provided a new perspective on what we want out of a job, where we want to work, and with whom."

If you're in the midst of searching for a new gig—like so many people are right now—take a minute to review eight questions related to the pandemic that recruiters are now asking.
