What to ask Employers during an interview

The most important thing to remember is that an interview is a two way process…

One should learn information about your new potential employer as they’re there to find out about you. The more details you know, the better you’ll be able to secure your fit for the job. In other words, always be prepared for the obligatory ‘do you have any questions?’ sentence.

To avoid any frustrating answers, here are some potential questions for you to ask employers:

 

Tell me more about your company?

This question will help you to know more about the company and what they do, as well as give you an opportunity to demonstrate how well you’ve studied it it.

You can also ask about the workplace, what the environment is like, and why it’s a great place to work.

Is this post a new or existing one?

This will help you to understand better of what’s expected of you, and can lead to a wider discussion.

If it’s a new post, then ask why it’s been created or how your performance will be measured. If it’s an existing one, ask who you’ll be replacing. This will lead to further discussion about your potential responsibilities and duties.

Always be first to ask.

 

How many other people are there  in the team?

It helps you to comprehend what is it like to work there and whether the team dynamic will match your way of working. It tells you, who’s in your team in terms of their specific roles, and how they relate to your position.

And, if you’ve talked about working well in a team on your CV, this can be a great way of demonstrating your capabilities.

 

What would my day-to-day accountabilities be?

This is a good way to find out whether the role is really right for you.

Find out what a typical day in the role would look like, and ask your interviewer if they can describe your area of responsibility, and what their expectations are.

Loke that there will be no surprises if you end up being offered the job.

 

What are the career prospects?

The last thing you want is to fall into a dead-end job all because you didn’t find out more about the potential for career progression.

Ask how the position fit into the company’s long-term plans, and see if there’s a clearly defined career path for you to follow.

It demonstrates your drive and desire to progress within the company.

 

What training schemes are you running?

Try to find out about progression, development and training. 

 After all, when it comes to job satisfaction, personal development can often be just as important as career development

What are the organisation’s plans for the future?

Ask that to show that you’re interested in the company – not just the industry as a whole. It will also allow the recruiter the chance to get overly excited talking about their plans.

 

How would you describe your ideal candidate?

Build up a good rapport before you ask it. Because if you’re not sure your performance was what they were looking for, you might not like their answer.

And no matter what they say, it’s probably safest to not add anything afterwards – especially if it’s to say how much it sounds like you.

 

When can I expect to hear from you?

Don´t forget it to ask this question. It is a good question to end up an interview.

No-one wants to sit by the phone for a week, waiting for it to ring – especially if it turns out it’s not going to for a minimum of two weeks because they have other interviews to do.

 

Final thoughts

You don’t have to stick to these questions, and they won’t necessarily work in every situation. Especially if you think of more specific to your interview during your conversation.

This is a chance to sell yourself as the best person for the job.

Don’t pass it up.
