Why it is required to ask questions from interviewer

Almost every interviewer wraps up the interview with the question “Do you have any questions for me?” And you’d be surprised that most people reply, “Nope!”

That’s a huge opportunity people missed. You should never reply “no” to this question. It’s your last chance to make a good impression, whereas it’s the interviewer’s way of gauging your level of interest in the job. If you don’t have any good questions, it shows a lack of curiosity and engagement.

And if the candidate has well prepared queries, it ends the interview looking great. Also it gives the interviewer a chance to get to know you because the types of questions you ask can reveal a lot.

So, don’t stop yourself asking your questions.

Sample good interview questions:

  1. Ask about the role that include queries like:
  • What would I be expected to accomplish in the first six months? The first year?
  • What’s the biggest opportunity/challenge I’d face in this role?
  • Can you tell me what a typical day looks like?
  • How will this role best serve [your specific function]?
  • Can you describe your/the supervisor’s leadership style?
  •  Based on the current team, what skills or traits are most important in order to excel in this role?
  • Who would I be interacting with regularly?
  1. Ask about the company
  • What will the onboarding and training process look like?
  • What sort of development and/or learning opportunities does the company offer?
  • Where does [company] see itself five years from now?
  • What are some of the department’s long-term goals?
  • Tell me about the biggest challenges facing the company/department.
  • What’s your favorite part about working here?
