Interview questions to impress your future employer

When a job interview comes to an end, most employers will ask you if you have any last questions regarding the company or the position. Learn how to be fully prepared for this moment and impress your employer with some outstanding questions.

Have you ever had a job interview and by the end of it you were faced with the question “So, do you have any questions for us?”, but you were left totally puzzled? If you answer with “No”, as most applicants do, you are missing out on the perfect occasion to learn more about the company, and your future role, and make a good impression on your employer.

It’s important to prepare some questions before the interview - three or four are ideal. Make sure you research the company and the job thoroughly. Here is a list of useful questions that you can keep in mind for your next interview and tailor according to your situation:

Questions about the position

  • What would be the biggest challenges of this position?
  • How do you measure job performance?
  • How would you describe a typical day of an employee in this role?
  • Does your company offer opportunities to grow for employees?

Questions about the company and employees

  • What does your company value the most?
  • How would you describe your ideal employee?
  • Can you describe the company’s culture?
  • What kind of current developments are there in your establishments?

Interesting questions

  • What were your expectations when you first joined the company and what has changed now?
  • What is your favorite aspect of working at this company?
  • Where do you think the company is headed in the next 5 years?
  • What changes or innovations in the industry are you most excited about?

Keep in mind that an interview should be a two-way dialogue, not a monologue of your employer. In addition to the interviewer evaluating you as a future employee, you are also deciding if you want to work for the company. Accept the interviewer's offer to ask questions as a chance to demonstrate your interest and learn details that will aid in your decision-making. After all, you are the one who makes the final decision when it comes to your employment.
