A dream about being interviewed points to things like a feeling of scrutiny or judgment in your waking life. That's the simple dream interpretation, at least.

You may be undergoing a period of self-evaluation or reassessment.

Alternatively, if you are conducting an interview in your dream, it suggests that you are seeking more information or understanding about a particular situation or person. This could indicate a desire to make informed decisions and a need for clarity. Both of these dreams reflect a search for knowledge and understanding, either about oneself or others.

An interview is a very very deep dream image to to give you a single, definitive meaning for. To know confidently, I would need to get to know the dreamer's life story and current environment.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of being interviewed can symbolize the unconscious mind's attempt to reconcile with the ego, a Freudian concept referring to the realistic part of the psyche.

With that being said, an interview can be more complicated than that. It may be a representation of an internal dialogue, a self-examination of one's own motives and actions. Conversely, conducting an interview in a dream may be thought of as the ego's attempt to gain insight into the id, the instinctual part of the mind. This suggests a quest for understanding the raw, unfiltered aspects of oneself or others. Both of these dreams, thus, can be viewed as the psyche's endeavor to achieve a state of equilibrium and self-awareness.

Dreaming of being interviewed can be a spiritual message about self-reflection and introspection. It may indicate a divine call to examine your life, actions, and decisions, symbolizing a spiritual audit. It's a call to align your life with your higher purpose. Conversely, conducting an interview in a dream could signify your spiritual quest for truth and understanding. It suggests your soul's yearning to delve deeper into the mysteries of life, people, or situations. It's a divine invitation to seek wisdom and enlightenment. Both of these dreams, therefore, may be thought of as spiritual journeys towards self-discovery and enlightenment, guided by the divine.
