A job interview isn’t just for the employer to get to know you. You should also be getting some insight as to what the company has to offer you as well.
Asking the right questions during your interview can not only show you’re a top-notch candidate who’s really in it to win it, but it can give you key insight as to whether a job is the right one for you.
There are 10 top questions you should always ask, such as:
1. What is the most challenging part of this job?
Asking this question shows that you’re not unrealistic or idealistic about the position at hand and that you are aware that every job comes with challenges, and prepared for those.
2. What is a day in the life of a fill in position here like?
Asking this question shows that you’re already envisioning working the job.
3. How does someone in this position know they’ve had a successful year?
This instantly removes “slacker” as a possible adjective for you because it shows you want to know how you can most contribute to the company. It shows you think about the big picture, not just the day-to-day, minimum tasks.
