The questions you ask in an interview are very telling. Here are three that can help you... and three you should avoid all all cost.
“What is the most unique part of your company culture? How do you think this has contributed to the company’s success?” Mike says asking questions that reflect your interest in the company culture and team structure show you’re genuinely invested in the role.
“What is the typical career path for the role?” By showing an interest in the long-term prospects of the role you’re gunning for, this question fends off the job-hopping stereotype.
“What are the expectations of
the role?” Performance management is important, and you’ll want to know how you’ll be assessed. It’s easier to succeed when you know the performance indicators you’re expected to hit.
“Can you tell me more about your company?” According to Mike, basic questions about the company that you can easily find on Google are a big no-no; researching the company should be part of your interview preparation.
“How much do I get paid?” Interviewees that ask about the pay are a red flag for Shelly; hiring managers want to know you’re in it for more than the money.
“What is this role about?” Knowing the requirements of the position should be obvious, but Shelly says she has encountered interviewees who still ask this.
