3 Outstanding Questions To Ask The Interviewer While Interviewing For Any Position

So do you have any question for us?

As your job interview comes to an end, one of the final questions you may be asked is, “What can I answer for you?”

And at this point you realize that you’ve been set on the spot and you just can’t wait to finish the interview and disappear from the interview. Right?

How do you react? Do you actually go ahead and pose the questions or do you freeze with a faint NO?

And by the way, do you know that asking some few questions can also give you the opportunity to further highlight some of your qualities, skills, and experience?

It is advisable to have at least something waiting for this moment. Don’t just appear blank at the interview. You might be giving yourself away. Seek assistance from an interview expert, friends or even colleagues when in doubt.

So, your goal during this point in the interview should be:

  1. Highlighting your qualifications for that particular job
  2. Demonstrating your confidence levels
  3. Reinforcing your commitment to that position
  4. Understanding your employer’s challenges
  5. Making yourself accountable

However, don’t squander this opportunity to shine by asking mundane questions like what is a normal day like?  The interviewer has probably heard this over and over again.

Let’s look at some of the sample questions you can include in your list.

1. Ask questions about the company

You can ask them what they value most as a company, and how they think your work will further elevate these values.

Questions about the most and least desirable aspects of the company’s culture are a good way to establish a connection with the employer.

How does this company define and measure success?

On top of this, you can ask them about their competitors. It shows that you are already thinking about how you can help the company rise to meet some of its bigger goals

2. You can also actually ‘ask’ the interviewer some questions

Focus some little attention on the interviewer but with extreme care. Ask them what they like about the company.

This question is important because it lets you “create a sense of closeness” with the interviewer because “interviewers just like everybody else usually like to talk about themselves and especially things they know well.

You can agree with me on this.

Furthermore, this question gives you a chance to get an insider’s view on the best parts about working for this particular company.

3. Don’t forget the bonus questions

This should be the very last. Don’t make them appear as some ‘me questions’ that put yourself ahead of the employer.

At the interview level, you are simply trying to demonstrate to the employer how you can benefit the company, not the other way around.

So some bonus questions can be such as:

How will you judge my success? What will have happened six months from now that will demonstrate that I have met your expectations?

What is the next step in the hiring process or when can I expect to hear back? Or by when do you hope to make someone an offer?

Also questions such as “when is the anticipated starting date for this position or whom should I reach out to if I have any further questions, can come in here.
