Job Interview Questions to Ask

In a job interview, you prepare yourself to answer all the difficult questions that the interviewer might ask, but have you thought about interview questions that you should ask?  You might have the perfect answers for your interviewer, but you can really impress him or her by being ready with questions of your own.  This way, the employer will see that you are a good fit for the company, and you’ll learn if the company is a good fit for you.

It is possible that a lot of your questions will be answered during the interview, but there’s always room for expansion.  There’s no need to assume that you should already know the answer to something, and asking questions will give you a better chance of being remembered, especially if the rest of the interview wasn’t particularly unique.

You can ask specific questions related to your position, such as:

  • “What will my daily responsibilities be?”
  • “How much of my position will be routine?”
  • “What is the management style?”
  • “Will I be able to see the results that my work will have for the company?”

The interviewer will know you’re determined to learn every aspect of your job and perform well.  Another good set of interview questions to ask would be related to your future with the company, such as:

  • “Is there opportunity for advancement in my position or somewhere within the company?”
  • “Does the company offer opportunities for ongoing training, workshops, and/or seminars?”
  • “What does the future look like for the company as a whole?”

Employers are always looking for someone that will be with them long-term.  It’s expensive to bring on new employees, and it also becomes a hassle to have to continuously train new people for the same position.  If you can guarantee that you’ll be staying, you’ll have a greater chance of landing the job.

And don’t forget to close with, “May I contact you if I have other questions?”  This leaves the door open for you, and it’s a good way to gauge the employer’s interest in you.  Interviews tend to make most people nervous, but look at it as a simple meeting instead, a way to determine your compatibility for each other, and don’t be afraid to ask your questions.
