Whether you're brand new to the job market--or you've been building your career for years--chances are you've wondered where the best place is to apply for a job. While we may thrive in some businesses, others may stunt our career growth and leave us wondering why we even bothered.

A very important--some might argue the most important--part of getting a new job is the interview. It's here that a company has the opportunity to really find out what we're all about. However, according to Glassdoor, the #2 job site in the U.S., "When it comes to interviewing potential talent, some employers just do it better than others."

Glassdoor just announced the results of its 2017 Candidates' Choice Awards for the Best Places to Interview, which were determined through the input of thousands of job candidates and employees within the Glassdoor database who rated their interview experience.
