Remember, there are two sides to every interview. On the one side there’s the interviewer, trying to learn more about you, your skills and your experience. On the other side there’s you, trying to work out whether the company and role are really what you’re looking for.
By asking the right questions, you not only show prospective employers you’re prepared, motivated and enthusiastic, but you also get to find out whether it’s the right role for you.
This is a great opening question, and an opportunity to connect the broader strategic direction of the company to your role.
Showing an interest in what your interviewer thinks about the organisation will drive rapport, while also providing excellent insight from a current employee.
You spend the majority of your waking hours at work so it’s crucial you know what the working environment is like. Different cultures suit different types of people – make sure you join one where you can really thrive.
This will ensure the interviewer sits up and listens. It signals that you want to be a real success in the role, which is what every manager wants to hear.
Insightfulness is always a great quality to demonstrate during an interview. This question shows that you recognize every job has challenging elements and that you’re already thinking about what it will take to succeed in this role.
