At the close of the interview, most interviewers ask whether you have any questions about the job or company. It’s always a good idea to have a few ready so that you show you’ve prepared for the interview and have thought about some things relative to the company or to the role that you would like to explore further.
Questions about the role: This is a unique opportunity to learn more about what you’ll do, if it hasn’t already been thoroughly covered in the earlier part of the interview. For example:
• Can you share more about the day-to-day responsibilities of this position? What’s a typical day like?
Questions about the company or the interviewer: This is also a good opportunity to get a sense of company culture and how the company is doing.
• What’s the company organization and culture like?
It’s important to be prepared to respond effectively to the interview questions that employers typically ask at job interviews. Since these questions are so common, hiring managers and interviewers will expect you to be able to answer them smoothly and without hesitation.
You don’t need to memorize your answers to the point you sound like a robot, but do think about what you’re going to say so you’re not put on the spot during the job interview. Practice with a friend so you’re familiar and comfortable with the questions. Good luck!
