Ask These Three Questions in Your Next Interview

Do you find it easy to get rattled in an interview, no matter how much you practice and prepare beforehand? If so, you’re not alone!

My sister just applied for a job and was thrilled to get an interview. But when I asked her how her interview went, she responded with frustration. The problem was, at the end of the interview, the interviewer asked her in one breath if she had any questions for them and if there was anything else they really needed to know about her. My sister got so excited to tell them a few more important things, she forgot to ask them any questions! She left without getting any information about their specific organization to help her determine whether she was even a good fit for their environment. In the limited time she had, she also didn’t get any feedback or a sense of how she’d measured up.

If you’re afraid of this happening to you, I’d recommend bringing with you a list on a notepad or card so you don’t get sidetracked or forget your key questions. But the bigger problem for some may be knowing what questions to ask your interviewer when it’s finally your turn.

Here’s some advice from James Caan, CEO of Hamilton Bradshaw Ltd. and an experienced interviewer: “Remember the aim is to sell yourself as a bright, motivated and ambitious individual…” Caan reminds candidates that the interview process is supposed to be interactive, not one-sided, and that you need to take control.

With that in mind, click here to read three questions this CEO recommends asking that will help you not only put your best foot forward, but also gain feedback that can help you in the future.
