SoulCycle CEO Melanie Whelan says that when it comes to job interviews, it's a candidate's questions — not their answers to hers — that seals the deal.
In an interview for the podcast "No Limits with Rebecca Jarvis," Whelan shares that some of the biggest mistakes she's made as CEO were rooted in not hiring the right people for her company. Now, as part of the company's hiring process, Whelan ensures that she conducts a thorough interview with all candidates.
She learns the most about job seekers from one question: "Do you have any questions for me?"
"It really shows you, has someone done their research," says Whelan. "Is someone an intellectually curious person? Do they have a list, or are they a more dynamic person where they are queuing off a conversation?"
