Another Q&A: Questions to ask at an interview

Question:

At the end of my interviews, when given the opportunity, I’m struggling to figure out the best questions to ask to set myself apart from other candidates?

Answer:

You should be prepared with 5-10 questions depending on how much time they will allow you.

  • “How will you measure the success of the person in this position?”
  • “What skills do you think are necessary in this position?”
  • “What are some of the challenges you expect the person in this position to face?”
  • “Can you describe a typical day or week in the job?”
  • “How long did the previous person in the role hold the position? What has turnover in the role generally been like?”
  • “What are you hoping this person will accomplish in their first six months and in their first year?”
  • “Thinking back to people you’ve seen do this work previously, what differentiated the ones who were good from the ones who were really great at it?”
  • “How would you describe the culture here? What type of people tend to really thrive here, and what type don’t do as well?”
  • “What do you like about working here?”
  • “What’s your timeline for next steps?”
  • “When do you hope to fill this position?”
