interview

 

Stand Out From the Pack:

If you’ve been using the “nope, I’m good” response in an interview after being asked “do you have any questions for us?” – you may want to rethink your strategy.

 

Show your recruiter that you’re a proactive (and attentive) candidate by asking follow-up questions that distinguish you from your competition. By being inquisitive you also get an opportunity to collect valuable information about the company/team/position you’re applying to (so take advantage!).

 

Here are a few post-interview questions to get you started:

 

About the Company:

  • “What would you say this company values the most?” “What’s the one collective goal you strive for everyday?”
  • “Can you give me an example of the least and most desirable trait an employee of yours might have?”

 

About Your Recruiter:

  • “What do you enjoy the most about being a part of this team?”

 

About Your Possible Team:

  • “Can you tell me about the team/department/management I’ll be working with?”
  • “Are there some areas in this department that need to improve?” “What are they and how?”

 

Follow Up Info:

  • “What’s the next step in the hiring process? Or When can I expect to hear back/from who?”
  • “Do you have a point of contact I can reach for a follow up?”

 

Bonus:

  • Taking the time to send a handwritten thank you not never fails – it’s a polite touch and certainly leaves a lasting impression.
