The dreaded question. You know its coming– I’ve never been in an interview without this question.
You don’t want to look like you haven’t done your research on the company or the position, but you can’t just say “No, I think you already answered all of them.” As a rule of thumb, you may want to ask about 1-3 questions to the interviewer.
YOU are interviewing the company just as much as THEY are interviewing YOU!
This part of the interview is a great time to ask questions surrounding your non-negotiables. Do they meet your requirements?
Here are some sample questions that I have asked in the past:
- How long have YOU been working with the company?
- Is there anything I can do after this interview to better prepare me for this position?
- How would you describe working in this department?
- How does my specific team’s culture differ from that of the entire company?
- What does progression look like from this particular role?
*Bonus points if you can find a way to ask a question about something the interviewer mentioned!
All of these questions are more than the basic job responsibilities/ interview process questions (though you can totally ask those as well). They show your interviewer that you are interested in more than just doing your job, but enjoying it and possibly making a career from it.
