Questions to ask at your interview.

Published

Not having the right questions to ask your Interviewer at the end of an interview can leave the employer with a bad taste in his/her mouth. Just as you don't get a second chance at the beginning of an interview to make a first impression; so it is true for when you leave.

Whether through nerves or inadequate preparation, when we are asked the immortal "Do you have any questions"? many of us look blankly, mutter "No" and skulk out of the door just glad the whole experience is over!

However, it's worth considering that you are missing a valuable opportunity to demonstrate your motivation to the interviewer and arm yourself with the tools to make an informed decision about the role, by asking a few simple questions. Most employers will tell you that a lack of questions may be mistaken for a lack of interest.

Here are a few examples of questions you may want to ask during an interview:

  • Why is this position open?
  • What would I be expected to accomplish in this position?
  • What are the short term/long term objectives of this role?
  • What sort of support is afforded to the position?
  • What advancement opportunities are available?
  • How is success measured in the company?
  • What is the performance appraisal procedure in the company?
  • What are the future plans of the department/company?
