The best questions to ask at the end of a job interview

BY Skillset 07 Sep, 2021

Okay, the job interview has been going well. You turned up on time (in fact, you were 5 minutes early!), you are well-presented, you have the correct documents with you, your body language has been impeccable and so far, you believe you have provided strong answers to all the questions asked by the interviewer.

The interviewer then asks if you have any questions..

To give yourself the best chance of winning the job, the response to this question should be ‘yes’.

Asking questions in the job interview shows you are interested in the job and the organisation hiring. It also allows you to find out more about the role you are applying for and the organisation you may work for.

Given it may be difficult to think of some questions on the spot, it is a good idea to have some questions prepared in advance that you can ask at any job interview.

These may include the following questions:

  • What do people enjoy most about working here?
  • What does success look like in this role?
  • What does the company look for in employees?
  • Can you tell me a little bit more about the work culture here and the team I will be working with?
  • What are the next steps after this interview?

Remember – an interview is your chance to show you are the best person for the job. Equally, the interview helps you to find out if the organisation hiring is the right one for you. Use this opportunity to learn as much as you can about the organisation and the job you are applying for.
