What is the first thing we do when we finally land a job interview? We start preparing by learning everything about the company and we plan exactly how we will answer the interviewer’s questions. Sometimes we focus so much on our answers, we forget that we’re also interviewing the company. There’s so much you can learn about job expectations and company culture by asking the interviewer the right questions.
Glassdoor.com created a list of 45 Questions You Should Ask in Every Job Interview. It’s a very extensive list, and I do not recommend asking all 45 in a single job interview. However, you should read through the list and pick several questions that’s important to you in your job search. Maybe you want to know more about management style or you may want to ask the interviewer questions to see if they even enjoy working for the company. Here’s my top picks from the list of questions to ask:
Can you offer specific details about the position’s day-to-day responsibilities?
What do you enjoy most about working here?
What are your views on goals, timelines, and measuring success?
How frequently do employees make themselves available outside of normal working hours?
Why do most employees leave the company?
What’s the next step of this process, and when can I expect to hear from you?
These are all great questions for you to ask an interviewer to find out more information on the company. What questions do you ask in an interview? We would love to hear from you! Just comment on this article or shoot us an email.
