Questions to ask at Interview

Questions to ask at interview

The interview is a two-way process. As well as the employer interviewing you, you are also interviewing your prospective employer. Remember, employers ask questions to get information out of you – but it is a two way process – make sure you tell them the information you want them to hear.

The types of questions you could prepare before the interview could be:

  • What will my role entail?
  • How has this position become vacant?
  • How does my role fit into the structure of the overall department?
  • How will my performance be monitored?
  • Who will I report to?
  • Will anyone report to me?
  • What are the opportunities for further training?
  • Where is your company going? Expansion plans?
  • Will this position involve travelling?
  • What is the next step? What does my daily routine involve?
  • What is the objective of this organisation/department/team?
  • What sort of person does well here?
  • How might I influence my own future in the company?
  • Which of my skills are required to do this job?
  • How does the culture of this team, this organisation compare to others?
  • How will this role satisfy my drives for success/progression/travel?
  • What is it about this department and organisation that you (the interviewer) enjoy?
