You would certainly be given a chance by the interviewers to clarify your doubts or ask any questions at the end of the interview. Don’t miss this opportunity. Take advantage and do ask questions. CNBC says, asking questions is important but the key is to ask the right kind of questions. What you have to keep in mind is that the questions you ask should be well thought out.
Below are the top 5 important questions that you can ask at the end of an interview!
1. What do you look for in a top performer so I could get that rating?
One of my favorite interview questions for a candidate to ask is, “At year-end, I want to be rated excellent. What do you look for in a top performer so I could get that rating?” Here’s another one: “How is performance measured?”
This question gives you a chance to understand the interviewer’s expectations from you.
2. Will there be an opportunity for my personal growth?
Glassdoor says that When asking this question, you’re looking to key into whether there are opportunities for growth and whether the company has a Learning & Development program.
3. Who will I be working with? What will my team and boss look like?
This question is a MUST! Says theinterviewguys. The last thing you want to do is get stuck with a bunch of people you can’t stand. By asking this question to the interviewer you’re showing that you’re serious about doing the job right. It’s also a great way to get a bit of information about your supervisor.
4. What do you like the most about working with this company?
TheCut says you can learn a lot by the way people respond to this question. you will get a fair idea about the company culture, team, learning, and employee satisfaction by listening to the interviewer's answer. this will help you to make up your mind while selecting jobs.
5. What are the next steps in the interview process?
According to topresume, asking about the next steps shows you are optimistic and want the job. Asking about the next steps also helps with determining the follow-up process, so that you don't bother them unnecessarily. you may ask whom should I contact to do follow up, can I have their number?
All the questions are intended to create a bright future and it will also make the employers realize that you are inquisitive and fully spirited with a keen desire to improve and learn. This is what employers seek from their workers.
What to remember
The employer wants to see how keen are you to join the company, once you clear technical round. Do research about the company and collect all important data/ news available in the public domain. By doing this you appear more committed as a candidate, and it will give you better insight into your next role.
