Here are more interview questions to ask employers. Making a good impression in an interview means answering the employer’s questions well. Asking good questions will get you hired! Last time I offered 20 interview questions to ask employers. I added ten (10) more just to increase your chances.
10 More Questions:
- What are the challenges, opportunities, and problems of the department?
- What are the plans for future growth? How will that growth change the department or organization?
- What do you think makes this company different from its competitors?·
- How does the company view this position?·
- Describe a typical week/quarter/first-year assignment.·
- What is the first problem that would need the attention of the person you hire?·
- What resources are available to get the job done, i.e. budget, training, etc?·
- What is a typical career path? What is the realistic timeframe for advancement?·
- May I have a mentor as well as a supervisor?·
- Do you have interdepartmental or cross functional assignments?
The goal of any interview is to get an offer. Preparation for an interview requires a lot of work. You need to prepare for all the possible questions the employer may ask you. They may ask you questions such as why you left or why you want to leave your last employer. Some of these questions may be uncomfortable or difficult for you. Employers want to see how you answer these questions and how you react to other questions. If you do well with those questions, your questions for them will cinch it. You need to learn enough about the company to make a decision.
Your decision is important! It can mean the difference of a successful career or leaving after a short time. Research the company and its reputation in the industry because it will be on your resume. The reputation will follow you wherever you go. Is the reputation good? Do they treat the employees well? Will the company and experience enhance your resume? These are just some of the things you should think about before you accept an offer.
Working for companies that have name recognition in your industry is important! Many of those well known names have great training programs or only hire the best people. It is not only good to have it on your resume, but in your background. Many CEOs of Fortune 500 firms spent time at GE, Proctor & Gamble, or IBM. These are just a few of the well known companies that attract, train and nurture future leaders. You may want to be one of them! More interview questions to ask employers will get the job offer.
