Interviewing the Interviewer

Interviewing the Interviewer

When you interview for a role, you should be also interviewing the company. It is important to determine if you are a good fit for the company and vice versa. The best way to do this is to respond with thoughtful questions at the end of the interview. When asked, “Do you have any questions?” always be prepared to respond with at least three. Below are some examples.

What is your favorite part about the company? This will allow you to gain insight into the company culture, team, and employee experience.

How do you see the company growing or changing in the next five years? This shows that you have researched the company and care about learning more and better understanding the company and industry.

What would a typical day look like in this role? This will allow you to have a clear picture of your daily responsibilities. This also shows an interest in learning more about the role and department that you have applied for.

What are some challenges that I may face in this role? This will give you an idea of what you can expect in this position and what challenges may arise.

Why is this position open? You may learn that this is a backfill or a new role created because of growth.

What are the next steps for this role? This allows you to be prepared for what comes next. There may be multiple rounds of interviews in-person or virtually, so asking this question allows you to prepare accordingly and know what to expect.
