You’re likely to hear in an interview, “Do you have any questions for me?” It can cause many job seekers to clam up, get nervous, and answer with “No. We covered everything.” But asking questions can give you more insight into the job and give the interviewer a good impression of you at the end of the interview. Here are three questions you always need to keep in mind.
What Do You Like Most About Working Here?
Any opportunity to find out more about the company culture is welcomed. Asking them to tell you why they love their job or workplace gives you much insight into what to expect if you accept the opportunity. You will be able to assess information based on their body language and the words they use to describe what they like most. This question can also spawn additional clarifying questions to help you get more information and feel more engaged about the potential opportunity.
Do You Have Any Concerns About My Experience and My Fit for This Job?
On the other side of the spectrum, it doesn’t hurt to address any unspoken concerns before leaving the interview. Asking the interviewer if there is anything they have concerns about will help you not only talk about them right away but lets them know that you are interested in doing what it takes to put your best foot forward. They’ll see that you’re willing to discuss these concerns and address them directly.
When Do You Plan to Make a Decision?
Finally, ensure you know this company’s next steps in the hiring process. It’s always a good idea to ask this question before you leave the interview so you can plan your next steps, including sending a thank you note or following up. You can assess the time you need to take after the interview to see where they are in the process and have another opportunity to reconnect.
