Landing the perfect job is all about asking the right questions. In an interview, you want to ensure that you put your best foot forward and show the interviewer that you are interested in the position.
Additionally, research can help you identify red flags about a company. If there are negative reviews or articles written about the company, this is something you will want to be aware of going into the interview.
When asking questions about the company, make sure you’re asking questions that don’t have obvious answers and aren’t easily searchable on Google.
1. What are the company’s plans for growth and development?
2. How has this company changed in recent years?
3. How would you describe this company’s values?
4. What are you most excited about regarding the company’s future?
5. What are the company’s strengths?
6. What are the company’s weaknesses?
To gauge whether or not you will be a good fit for the team, it’s essential to ask questions about the team dynamic.
1. Who will I be working closely with? Are there any other departments I will work with?
2. What metrics or goals will supervisors evaluate my performance by?
3. What is my top priority in the first 90 days?
4. What are your expectations for this position?
5. What are the most immediate projects that need my attention?
