Having some prepared questions to ask at a job interview will make you more confident. It will also leave the interviewer with an impression of a potential employee who is both reflective and prepared. While you certainly won’t need 175, reviewing the following suggestions will allow you to prepare yourself. If you have a few intelligent things to ask about the position and the workplace, you will leave a good impression and learn more at the same time.
Generally, an interview will close with one final question for the interviewee: “Do you have any questions for us?” Now you do.
175 questions to ask at a job interview
Job Mob created a list of 175 potential questions to ask during a job interview, broken into the following categories: questions about the job itself; questions about the company; questions about the boss; questions about the team; and questions about feedback and next steps. While the questions refer to employers as companies, these questions can be asked at nonprofits, too! Below are a few of our favourites.
Questions about the job itself:
- What would you consider to be the most important aspects of this job?
- What types of skills do you NOT already have on board that you’re looking to fill with a new hire?
- How would you define “success” for this position?
- What particular aspects about my background and experience interest you?
Does anything cause you concern about my candidacy?
Questions about the organization:
- Why do you think people leave this company?
