What should I ask at interview?
What would you like to ask me?

This is your moment. Your chance to shine. Your chance to stand out in an interview and make the interviewer sit up and listen. Don't sit like a rabbit in the headlights and ask about benefits or salary, show the interviewer what you're made of, show them you're a critical thinker. Show them you've given real thought to this interview before you showed up.
WOW them!
  • What would I be expected to achieve in my first six weeks and what metrics do you use to measure success?


  • What are the main goals of the company at the moment and how will this role contribute?


  • Can you tell me more about the team I’d be working with and where this role sits within that hierarchy?


  • Tell me about the traits of your top performers.


  • Has the company faced any big challenges recently and how were they tackled?


  • What challenges have previous employees in this role faced?


  • What attracted you to working at the company and what keeps you motivated after so long?


  • What are the training opportunities like at the company? Are these mostly internal or are there external courses available? How much time is dedicated to development?


  • Are there any gaps in my experience or skill set that you’re concerned about? 

The theory behind each of these questions and how you might best use them can be read here in this source article.

You're welcome!
