10 Interview Questions to Ask Your Interviewer🎀

1. What is your opinion on **insert industry trend**? πŸ“Š

This question is probably the most valuable one we’ve suggested. It is a question that should blow your interviewer’s socks off!

Not only are you showing the interviewer that you’re knowledgeable about their organisation or industry, but that you’re keen to learn from them and improve upon your amazing knowledge.

Here you can show that you have researched and understand the job more than anyone else.

You could ask about:

  • What the organisation’s competitors are doing
  • The latest news for the organisation’s industry – how is it impacting the organisation?
  • Latest technology developments – how is it impacting the organisation?
  • New laws and regulations – how is it impacting the organisation?

For example, if you were interviewing at a coffee shop you could ask researched questions like:

“There has been a lot of news about the difficulties around clearly labeling allergies at coffee shops. Has this impacted the way that you work?”

These questions can be difficult to prepare because you have to do a lot of research. However, they can be the key to dropping your interviewer’s jaw, and turning a difficult interview around!

2. What is the biggest challenge you think the successful candidate will face? ⛰️

This question is important because it shows the interviewer that you’re keen to take on challenges and solve problems for the organisation – amazing!

3. Can you tell me what you think is the most important quality for the successful candidate to have? ✨

Quite often interviewers will tell you different qualities that they’re looking for in a candidate, and hopefully by this point you’ve shown them that you’ve got them. However, it’s always interesting to know which one they think is the **most important**, so that you can focus on showing them that you’ve got it!

This question shows that you’re keen to be the person they’re looking for.

If the interviewer has already talked a lot about what they want from a candidate, it might be worth saying “I think you’ve mostly covered this, but can you tell me what you think is the most important quality for the successful candidate to have?”

4. What do you think the main priorities for the team will be for the next 6 months? πŸ“

Interviewers want you to care about getting the job, but they also want you to care about supporting the wider team and objectives for the organisation.

Using this question will show them that you care about the wider team/organisation, and will support them if you’re the successful candidate.

5. What is your favourite thing about working for this organisation? πŸ₯°

Not only does this question show the interviewer that you’re a positive person, this question can really help you to work out what the most enjoyable aspects of the job will be.

Does the interviewer’s answer get you excited about the role? This question can help you to decide if you want to work there or not!

If the interviewer can’t say anything positive about the organisation — maybe it’s not somewhere you want to work!

6. Do you have any concerns about my suitability for this position that I can address for you? πŸ’ƒ

This question can really help you to gauge where your areas of strength and weakness are for the job. If the interviewers have concerns about you, it’s a great opportunity to reassure them that you will address them.

Maybe you don’t have a lot of experience and forgot to tell the interviewer about all the studying/research you’ve been doing. This question can help you to make sure you’ve covered everything the interviewer is looking for!

7. Can you tell me what you think success looks like for this role? πŸ…

This question is a winner – hopefully by now you’ll already know what a successful candidate would look like and what they want from you. Asking this question shows that you’re focused on not just meeting the job requirements – – you want to bring them **success**. You are keen to go above and beyond in the role to impress them, and to be a success.

If the interviewer has already talked a lot about what they want from a candidate, it might be worth saying “I think you’ve mostly covered this, but I wanted to get your thoughts on what success looks like for you for this role?”

8. Can you tell me what the most important things are for someone to accomplish in the first month/first year in the role? πŸ“†

This question shows that you’re keen to succeed, and that if you get the job, you’ll even plan to succeed. Amazing!

If the interviewer has already talked a lot about what they want from a candidate, it might be worth saying “I think you’ve mostly covered this, but I wanted to get your thoughts on what the most important things are for someone to accomplish in the first month/first year in the role?”

9. What gets you most excited about the organisation’s future? πŸ™Œ

Interviewers want you to care about supporting the organisation. This question shows that you’re a positive person, who is interested in the future of the organisation.

Does the interviewer’s answer get you excited about the role? This question can help you to decide if you want to work there or not!

If the interviewer can’t say anything positive about the organisation — maybe it’s not somewhere you want to work!

10. What are the next steps for the interview process? πŸͺœ

This is a good question if the interviewer hasn’t already explained the process and you haven’t prepared anything else to ask. It shows that you’re keen to hear back from them, and to work with them.
