When going for a job interview, it is good to be prepared for “just-in-case” questions – questions that you may or may not be asked. Among those questions, is “Do you have any questions for me?”. Asking your own questions to the person interviewing you is always a good thing, as it indicates that you are genuinely interested in the company you will be potentially working for, and that you are serious about the job interview.
Here is a list of potential questions you can ask:
- Is this a new position? If so, why was it created? If not, why did the person who held the position leave the position?
- Did my resume raise any questions I can clarify?
- What do you look for in an employee?
- What type of training is required and how long is it?
- What would my first assignment be?
- How long ago did you (the interviewer) join the company? What is it about the company that keeps you here?
- After you have interviewed me, when can I expect to receive feedback?
- How regularly do performance evaluations occur?
