3 Simple Questions to Ask During Your Next Interview

October 26, 2017

Career Advice

Interviews are all about getting bombarded with questions. Right? But interviews also offer you the unique opportunity to dig in to the company, the culture, and the job itself. Make sure that you have a list of questions prepared, and don’t be afraid to cut the interview short and ask if you can have five minutes to ask the interviewer your questions.

Here are three questions to add to your list:

  1. What is the on-boarding process like? Get an understanding as to what kind of training will be provided to you as a new employee and throughout the future. Ask about classes, conferences, and other learning opportunities.
  2. What are the immediate needs and challenges of this position? You may understand the job title and general job responsibilities but what will your day-to-day actually be like? Find out what projects will fall into your lap from day one, and it may help you understand whether or not this position is a good fit for you.
  3.  How will my performance be reviewed? It’s important to understand how your work will be rated and what expectations will be placed on you during the year. Also, you may want to get a better understanding of your performance can affect your bonus.
