A Twitter thread by jade.
Over time, I’ve come to love the question, “Do you have any questions for me?” after an interview. Here’s my list of my favorite questions to ask that have led to me getting the job:
(I don’t ask /every/ question listed here after my interview, I use them when and where I see fit depending on the conversation, role, and type of interview)
What does a typical day look like?
How would you describe the work environment here - is the work typically collaborative or more independent?
What are the current goals that the company is focused on, and how does this team/role work to support hitting those goals?
I have the job description right in front of me, which of these responsibilities is your immediate priority? (great for phone interviews!)
What are the key characteristics you think a person needs to be a great cultural fit at your company?
What career development opportunities do you offer to your employees?
What do you like most about working for this company?
What does success look like in this position, and how do you measure it?
How do you see my skills and experience fitting with the needs of the company?
Do you have any reservations about considering me for this role? (typically the final question I’d ask)
Happy interviewing season! Hope these questions are put to good use. If I wrote a blog post about with all of my interviewing tips and advice, would y’all check it out? 👀
