There is always a continuous hustle when it comes to landing job interviews. And in a bid to get a job and foot the bills, most job aspirants fail to ask detailed questions about the company during a job interview! They are more concerned about getting the job first. But we see an increasing number of employees struggling to find their place after accepting a position. They begin to wonder what is going wrong when things do not turn out as they expected. They start experiencing issues or have difficulties working with the company. It would be best if you focused on what you can offer the company and what they can offer you too (aside from the pay).The following are ten specific questions you should ask in a job interview before you accept the job. I will categorize the question into three groups: qualifying questions, rapport-building questions, and closing questions.
1. If I perform well on this job after my initial review period, where can I expect to be in another two to three years?
In an interview, it is standard practice for the interviewer to ask you some questions regarding your career path or why you want the job role. But it shouldn’t end there. You must also clearly ask the interviewer about what your long-term career plan will be like with the company. You want to know where you will be in that company after the next two to three years (of course, you should have a specific goal in mind). When it comes to job roles and promotions, it’s essential to be goal-specific. And having a goal in mind will propel you to become better at that job role.
2. What are the company’s expectations for the person who gets awarded this job position?
For the company to open the job position, you are applying for, that means they have expectations for the individual that is about to occupy that position. The interviewer’s questions can give you a hint of the company’s expectations for the occupant of that position. When it’s time for you to ask questions, ask your interviewer about the challenges that they are currently facing that resulted in the job opening. This question will help you understand if you are likely going to meet their expectations. It does not stop at knowing the expectations; it is up to you to build on that expectation to impress Read More
