Ask Great Questions During a Job Interview

During an interview process, the candidate is usually the one answering questions, while the potential employer does the majority of the asking: but it is important to flip the script and voice any questions or concerns to the hiring manager that may have come up during the conversation. The article, “5 Questions Great Job Candidates Ask,” by Jeff Haden give examples of great questions candidates can ask to make a lasting impression. ¬†They are…
1. What do you expect me to accomplish in the first 60-90 days?
2. What are common attributes of your top performers?
3. What are a few things that really drive company success?
4. What do employees do during their spare time?
5. How do you deal with _____?
These questions show that you are interested in seeing how you would fit in with the company culture, if you could be successful within the organization, and are aware that every business will come across challenges; and will set you apart from other candidates in the race.
