You’ve done it, you’ve got an interview and you’re all ready to go and prepared for any question that comes your way. They ask about your background and past working experiences to gain an insight into who you are and how you could fit into their company. The interview is almost done and they ask you the last question – “do you have any questions for me?”

What really makes a candidate stand out from the crowd is when they actively participate with the interviewer by asking them questions. This is a perfect opportunity to delve into the company and ask all those burning questions. It also helps show your genuine interest in the role along with evidencing that you have done your research on the company and the role on offer. 

There are a range of questions that can be considered in these situations but make sure you use the ones you are most comfortable with asking. Remember, it is important to end the interview as confident as you were at the beginning, this will help you stand out when they are discussing who they want to hire.

Here are 9 of the best from TheUndercoverRecruiter:

  1. How would you describe the general culture of the company and the workplace?
  1. Why did you choose this company?
  1. Will there be any form of training provided?
  1. What are some of the biggest challenges/successes facing the department currently? 
  1. What process will be used to evaluate my employee performance? 
  1. Who will be my direct supervisor?
