Great candidates ask these questions in an interview


Never walk into an interview room armed only with answers.

When preparing for an interview, compile a list of great questions that you can ask your interviewer/s. Here is our list of favourite questions that we’ve seen super good candidates ask:

What problems or challenges are you looking to solve with this position?

What is the difference between a good candidate for this role, and a great candidate?

Who are stakeholders that are critical success factors to this position? How would you describe them?

Why is the position vacant?

What difficulties or issues did the previous person face in that role?

What kind of career development and training can anyone in this position expect?

If you had any reason for not selecting me for this role, what would it be?

If I were to accept this opportunity, what do you foresee to be potential gaps and areas for development that I can work on immediately?

What excites you the most about your job or the company, as well as the least?

Is there anything you would have done differently about your work or career here?

What advice would you have for me in navigating the unspoken rules here?

What is the best advice you’ve received from someone working here?

If you could change one thing about this company, what would it be?
