Interview advice

1st September 2015

Asking questions at your job interview is a sure fire way to demonstrate your interest in the job and the research you’ve done. Here’s a selection of questions you might want to ask your interviewer, together with questions they may ask you and which you should prepare for.

You might want to ask…

  • Why is the position available?
  • I have seen …….. on your website. Could you tell me more about that?
  • Can you describe the culture of the company?
  • What are the growth prospects for the role?
  • What would I need to do to realise that growth?
  • What are the company’s growth plans?

Prepare yourself to be asked…

  • Why are you interested in this particular role?
  • What do you really want to do in your next career move?
  • Why would you like to work for our organisation?
  • Where do you see yourself, career-wise, five years from now and why?
  • Under which style of management do you work best?
  • What interests you about our company?
  • What would your previous employers say about you?
  • What have you learned from previous jobs?
  • Which jobs have you enjoyed and why?
  • Where do you see your strengths?
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • What do you think are the necessary assets for progression within a company?
  • How would you describe ‘teamwork’?
  • Give an example of a problem or conflict that you have resolved recently.

Not all of these questions will appear during interviews but it always best to be prepared and ready for any and all possible questions.
