When you have an interview, you not only must answer questions, you also have the opportunity to ask them. It’s important when you’re given the chance to ask interview questions, you have queries ready to impress the hiring manger.
While it can be hard to know exactly what to ask, some good questions you may wish to consider include:
- How will you measure the success of the person in this role? This question shows you are interested in learning what the company wants you to contribute if you are hired. It demonstrates you aren’t just focused on what the organization could do to help your career, but your primary goal is to meet or exceed the employer’s expectations. It also helps you determine if you’re well qualified for the job and if you feel you’d be able to excel based on their established ideas of what a successful candidate brings to the table.
- What are the biggest challenges faced by the person in this role? By asking this question, you can show how you can add value to the organization. If you have skills or abilities that can help you succeed at overcoming these challenges, you can share this with the employer.
- Why is the position vacant? This can give you insight into their hiring process and help you tailor your answers to other interview questions showing how you can fulfill specific responsibilities.
