Questions To Ask Employers In An Interview

December 26th, 2014

A candidate who has done their homework will have a clear advantage in the interviewing process. Companies like to see that you already know about their business and are genuinely interested. In order to make a good first impression you may also want to consider some questions of your own to engage the interviewer in conversation. Here are four questions you may want to consider for your next interview.

  1. “What can I expect to accomplish in my first month?” This demonstrates that you are ready to get to work. While you know you have to be trained in specifics you also want to express that you want to hit the ground running. This shows that you are a self-starter and that you may even learn best by doing.
  2. “What makes your employees successful?” You want to know what it takes to fit in with the team. It is important for the success of your new job, and the continued success of the organization. You may also learn more about the people you will be working with which can give you some insight on the company overall.
  3. “How will the company make money?” You are an investment to the business so it is important that you know how the company generates a profit. You want to let them know that you’re interested in making a financial contribution to the company regardless of your specific role. You can show that you are interested in the bottom line and the more money the company makes the more successful you will be as well.
  4. “What are the long term plans for the company?” Employers want to see that their hires are dedicated and interested in long term careers. They are interested in you growing with the company. You may want to know about the future of the organization and how your role can grow within it. Ask them about the long term goals and how you can play a role.
