Questions to Ask the Interviewer
Be ready to ask intelligent questions during the interview. DO NOT bring up issues related to salary and benefits until the employer initiates these topics. Although money may be a high priority for you, asking about salary indicates to the employer that you are more interested in what the job pays than the work itself.
- How does this position fit within your organization's structure?
- How will I receive feedback about my performance, and how often?
- Where can a position of this type lead to within your organization?
- How did this position become available?
- What does your orientation and training process entail?
- What are the long-term goals or growth plans of the organization?
- What type of continuing education or training does the organization provide?
- What are you looking for in the ideal candidate?
- What are some of the challenges this organization/department faces?
- What do you like about working here?
- What kind of day-to-day supervision is provided for the person in this position?
- Can you describe the daily, office environment of your department/organization?
- If you like what's been discussed in the interview, let the employer know that you're excited about what you've heard and are still very much interested in the position.
- Before leaving, be sure to thank the interviewer for his/her time. Find out about the next steps in the hiring process and when decisions will be made.
