Questions to Ask Your Interviewer



If you’ve been looking at job vacancies and have finally managed to land an interview, the next step is preparing yourself for the right answers to any question that the interviewer may ask. However, another aspect to ponder upon is whether you prepared yourself to ask the right questions. By asking the right questions, you can indicate your interest in the role and make the conversation more engaging rather than one-sided. Here’s a list of questions that will impress your interviewer and help you assess the specifics of the job vacancy you’ve applied for.



Roles and Responsibilities



Take this opportunity to get more information about the position you’re applying for. Here’s a list of the possible questions you could ask:



1. What are the day-to-day responsibilities?
2. What kind of skills and experience do you want your candidate to possess?
3. What are the major challenges faced or opportunities given to someone in this position?



There are many more questions that you could ask your interviewer but be sure to do some research before asking them.



Company Culture



Once you’ve found that the job vacancy is the right fit for you, it’s time to ask questions about the company and find out whether its culture is right for you.



1. Can you give me some specifics about the company?
2. How would you describe the company culture?
3. What can you share about your plans for the growth and development of this company?



This will help you understand whether the company is growing or stagnating.



Training and Development



Asking these questions will help you decide whether the company provides opportunities for employee growth.



1. Will there a training program? If so, could you give a brief?
2. Are there opportunities for professional development?
3. Will I be getting feedback or mentoring for my work?



The Interviewer



Asking the interviewer about their own experience at the firm will give you a clearer picture of the job vacancy.



1. What’s your favourite/exciting part of working with this company?
2. How did you become successful at the company?



Other personal questions can build rapport with the interviewer as it shows your interest in them.



Lastly, ask for the next step in the hiring process. Remember to ask WH questions and avoid yes-no questions. End the interview with an insightful question to leave a mark and you’ll certainly land the job vacancy of your dreams.
