The end of your interview is quickly approaching. You know you aced it. The interviewer nodded along with several of your answers. You found out you had a mutual favourite sports team and bonded over that. You’re getting the vibe you’re definitely a shoo-in for the job. And then… the final question drops: “do you have any questions for me?” Crickets. Everything you wanted to know was covered during the interview.
Has this ever happened to you? If it has, don’t worry, it’s an easy fix that we can help you rectify! It’s always a good idea to have a stash of questions in your back pocket for this seemingly innocuous question. Many people prepare for all the tough interview questions about strengths and weaknesses and their past job experiences, but forget that they should also be asking questions to get to know their potential employer. Don’t waste this valuable opportunity to ask about the company you could be working for and show that you’re invested in the opportunity.
We’ve talked about what not to ask in a job interview, but looking in the opposite direction, here are some awesome questions you should absolutely ask.
Remember, the point of a job interview is to assess fit on both sides. Sure, the interviewer is getting to know you, but you should be getting to know them, too! Don’t waste the opportunity to dig in and get to know more about the company and the job that might soon be yours!
