Pro-tip for job seekers: never pass on the opportunity to learn more about your prospective employer. Here are three questions every applicant should ask during an interview.
Imagine the cruel irony of a job interview for a coveted luxury brand where you answer every single question correctly except “do you have any questions?”
Here’s a pro tip: never pass on the opportunity to learn more about your prospective employer. Come to every interview with a list of thoughtful questions prepared.
Asking questions is a chance to flex your professional muscle, show that you’ve done your research, and market yourself to your potential employee.
If you’re drawing a blank, here are three questions every applicant should ask during an interview:
1) What does the evolution of my role look like?
This question shows potential employers that you’re thinking about your future with the company and growing along with them.
Also, consider pairing it with something like, “What will this role look like in two or five years compared to now?”
2) Am I going to work in a team environment? If so, could you give me some background on the team?
Asking about your potential colleagues shows an interest in getting a firm grasp of the culture – an integral part of company success. It also conveys that you’re already taking a vested interest in the bigger picture instead of only what impacts you and your ability to land the role.
Combine this question with something like, “Do you foresee any opportunities I can help to improve?”
3) What do you love most about working at your company?
Posing this question can give you the insight you need to know if the company is the right fit for you.
Something else to ask the hiring manager or other decision-makers at the interview is, “What excites you most about the company’s future?”
Top-tier executive talent comes to job interviews well-prepared and ready to dig deep with questions to the hiring managers.
