Killer Interview Questions

Imagine you are nearing the end of a great interview and the manager asks if you have any questions.  You feel like everything has been covered so you say thanks and leave.

You have missed a really important chance to cement the fact that you are a thoughtful and smart candidate and to learn more about the role.  Do not let this chance go to waste.

Here are some questions to have in your back pocket.

  • How will you know if I am being successful in six months?
  • What challenges lie ahead for this department?
  • What are the characteristics of your top people in this role?
  • Why did you join this organization?
  • Is there a sense of community here?
  • How would you describe the style of the senior leadership team?

I am sure there are lots more but this should be enough to get you started.   Feel free to customize these for your interests and situation.

Here’s the icing on the cake:  work at least one of the things you learned into your thank you note.  Bazinga!
