Interview Questions and Answers

From Alison Doyle, Your Guide to Job Searching.

Interview Questions to Ask the Interviewer

It's your turn! As the interview comes to a close, one of the final questions you may be asked is "What can I answer for you?" Have interview questions of your own ready to ask. You aren't simply trying to get this job - you are also interviewing the employer to assess whether this company and the position are a good fit for you.

Interview Questions to Ask ~

·   How would you describe the responsibilities of the position?

·   How would you describe a typical week/day in this position?

·   Is this a new position? If not, what did the previous employee go on to do?

·   What is the company's management style?

·   Who does this position report to? If I am offered the position, can I meet him/her?

·   How many people work in this office/department?

·   How much travel is expected?

·   Is relocation a possibility?

·   What is the typical work week? Is overtime expected?

·   What are the prospects for growth and advancement?

·   How does one advance in the company?

·   Are there any examples?

·   What do you like about working here?

·   What don't you like about working here and what would you change?

·   Would you like a list of references?

·   If I am extended a job offer, how soon would you like me to start?

·   What can I tell you about my qualifications?

·   When can I expect to hear from you?

·   Are there any other questions I can answer for you?

Interview Questions NOT to Ask ~

·   What does this company do? (Do your research ahead of time!)

·   If I get the job when can I take time off for vacation? (Wait until you get the offer to mention prior commitments)

·   Can I change my schedule if I get the job? (If you need to figure out the logistics of getting to work don't mention it now...)

·   Did I get the job? (Don't be impatient. They'll let you know.)
