In almost every interview, you will get a chance to ask questions at the end. Many students don’t take this part of an interview too seriously and waste an opportunity to impress their interviewer. Recruiters base your level of interest off the quality of questions you ask. So what should you ask them? Here is a list of the 5 best questions you should ask your interviewer and why!
- What is the largest problem that is currently facing your staff and would I be in a position to help alleviate this problem?
By asking this questions you are showing that you have a desire to help their firm be successful and you are also helping the interviewer to visualize you in that position.
- How would you describe the company culture?
Company culture is a huge aspect of a job! If your personality and morals don’t match the company’s then you might find yourself in an unfulfilling job. Asking this question, shows the interviewer that you are looking for a company that will be the best fit for you and for them!
- What does success look like in this role?
Talk about a show stopping question! This question is a great way to show your interviewer that you have a drive to be successful and you are willing to put in the effort to get you there.
- Why did you choose to work for this company?
What is so great about this question is that it is personal. Job interviews can become very stiff and focused only on the job. Asking a personal question like this can break down those barriers and start to create more of a personable relationship with you and the interviewer.
- Will I be hearing from you or should I contact you?
This question isn’t a deep, methodical question but it does give you some valuable information! A lot of interviewers won’t give out their email unless prompted to do so. Asking something like this is a great way to bring up contact information, while also finding out when you should anticipate hearing from them!
