Do you get stuck in interviews when you're asked "do you have any questions"?

Don't worry, you are not alone.

After a sixty minute interview it can be difficult to switch gears and come up with a great question. And because of this it’s common for candidates to default to the same vanilla questions.

However, your questions can help you stand out from the crowd and make a lasting impression on the hiring manager.

You only need 1-2 good ones to make an impact. We recommend memorising your questions prior to the interview, or writing them on a notepad and taking them with you.

👉 Here are some great questions you could try;

✳ Tell me about the most successful person you hired. Why were they successful?

✳ How will you measure the success of the person in this position?

✳ How does the company recognize, reward & develop high performers?

✳ What needs to be done to overcome the biggest challenges in this role?

✳ What are the most important things you’d like me to accomplish in the first 6 months?

✳ For sales roles – How is the territory performing & where do you see the future opportunities for growth?

✳ Why did you choose to work here & what do you enjoy most about it?

✳ How would you describe your team? How would they describe you & your management style?

✳ What sets your company apart from your competitors?

✳ What does your company value most?

Do you have questions, concerns or hesitations about my qualifications or expertise? If yes, do you mind elaborating?
