Make your job interview questions count

Arm yourself with some impressive interview questions of your own

Sweet! You’ve scored an interview. As you get ready for the big day, it’s important to prepare for the age-old interviewer question – “do you have any questions for me?”.

Preparing a list of go-to questions shows a genuine curiosity about the role. Here’s a handy list of bold questions to leave a strong impression.

  1. Cover all your bases

    Before asking your more probing questions, make sure that you’ve answered all of theirs. A simple, “Have I answered all of your questions?” covers it.

  2. Help them help you

    Don’t be afraid to ask questions that will ultimately help you if you land the gig. They’ll show that you’re confident and forward-thinking.

    • What qualities make an ideal candidate for this position, and how do I compare?
    • If you were to hire me, what might a typical day look like?
    • How do my qualifications stack up with your expectations?
    • Do you have any concerns about me as a candidate for this role?

  3. Get personal

    Remember that your interviewer already works for the company, so they’re a treasure trove of information about what working there is actually like.

    • What do you like most (or least) about working there?
    • In your opinion, what’ the company’s biggest strength?
    • What are some of the more interesting aspects of the projects or tasks you undertake?
    • Can you tell me a bit about the workplace culture?

    Interviews may be stressful, but they’re your last chance to get the inside scoop on the job. Make the experience work to your advantage and help yourself make the best decision.
