A Great Question For the End of Your Interview

September 19, 2017

Career Advice

When an interview ends, it’s hard to know for sure what the interviewer was thinking. Did they love you or did they think you were unqualified? Do they think you’re perfect for the job or just a runner up? Besides reiterating your interest at the end of an interview, there’s not much more you can do to “seal the deal.”

But this one question may help. Are you ready for it? Once you’ve answered their questions, and they’ve answered yours, save this one for last: “Do you have any concerns with my experiences or questions about my abilities that I can address right now?” Not only does this give the interviewer a chance to bring up any outstanding issues or lingering doubts, but it also shows that you’re definitely interested in landing this offer. After all, you didn’t want to leave any doubts in their mind!

The interviewer may brush off this question–but they’ll still be impressed that you asked. Or, they may bring up a true concern. Since that’s always a possibility, be prepared to answer a serious question. You likely already know what the interviewer may be worried about when it comes to your past experiences. Practice a few talking points regarding any of your soft spots so this question works to your advantage–and not your detriment.
