More Questions to Ask In Your Next Interview

February 13, 2014

Career Advice

We’ve already covered the best questions to ask in your next interview, but we’ve rounded up a few more that can help you make a decision when it comes to accepting a job offer or not. After all, the interview is a chance for you to feel things out too. Is this the kind of company you’d like to work for? Is the position all it’s cracked up to be? Will you be happy here? These questions might help you get to the bottom of it:

  • How has this position evolved over the past few years? If the position began as an entry level position, but now has added responsibility perhaps there is even more room to grow. That’s always a good thing.
  • What is the first project I’ll be tackling? Find out what your first priority is in this position — does it sound in line with the job description and your interests? Great.
  • How would you describe a typical workweek in this position? This might be a chance to discover how closely you’ll be interacting with coworkers and how often you’ll be pulled into meetings.
  • What do you love most about working here? It’s time to get a little personal and ask your interviewee what he or she enjoys about this company and this team. A generic answer might be a warning sign. Try to dig deeper.
  • How often will I interact with my manager? Try to get a feel for whether you’ll have a boss that’s available at all times for questions or a boss who’s too busy in meetings 90 percent of the time.
  • Can I expand on any of my qualifications for you? If the interviewer is hesitant about hiring you, it’s best to address those issues now — when you actually have a say in the subject.
