3 SMART QUESTIONS TO ASK IN A JOB INTERVIEW! (Job Interview Tips!)


Hi, everybody! My name is Richard McMunn from the interview
training company, PassMyInterview.com and in this tutorial we are going to take a look
at 3 smart questions to ask in your interview. So, it doesn’t matter what interview you have
got coming up, the three questions will be perfect for you to ask the interview panel. So, a very warm welcome to this tutorial. That’s me there on the right-hand side. My name is Richard McMunn and I am very passionate
about helping people to pass their interviews. And I’ve been doing this for over 20 years
now. And in this specific video we’re going to
focus on 3 smart questions that you can ask in your interview. Please do make sure you subscribe to the channel
by clicking the red button below this video. That way, you will not miss out on any of
the weekly tutorials that I’m uploading. And also, I hope you enjoy my tuition and
my training videos. If you do, I’d appreciate it if you gave the
video a thumbs up. Thank you very much. OK. Let’s get straight into it. So, people say to me: “Richard, should I
ask any questions at my interview?” And I say “yes, absolutely you should!” Some people don’t. They like to say “No, it’s OK. I don’t have any questions, you’ve covered
everything.” But this is your opportunity to shine. This is your opportunity to show you are a
smart, intelligent and caring person. So, the aim of these three questions I’m about
to give you are designed to put you ahead of the competition. So, how many questions should you ask? It’s my advice that you ask three questions,
and these are the questions to ask. So, take notes. Question number one – “What’s the first
thing you would need me to focus on in this role to help your business grow and develop?” That’s a brilliant question! And if you were being interviewed by me and
you asked me that question, I’d think this is a smart person and that you care about
my organization. So, it’s “What’s the first thing you would
need me to focus on in this role to help your business grow and develop?” Now there are three reasons why this is a
great question to ask. Number one – this question shows you are keen
to hit the ground running and you are already thinking about the role. Number two – the question shows you care about
their organization and you want to make a difference, and every employer, every hiring
manager wants staff who care about their organization. Number three – this question gets the interview
panel thinking about you within the role and how you can help them. So, “What’s the first thing you would need
me to focus on?” So, they have to think about you in the role
and your skills and qualities that you’ve demonstrated during the interview. And that can only be a positive thing! Okay. Question number two of questions to ask in
your interview. Here we go. “Where do you think the company is headed
in the next five years?” Now this is a very intelligent question as
well, because it serves three main purposes. Here we go. This question shows the interview panel you
are a forward-thinking employee who is positive about the future. So, you are thinking ahead which, is a good
thing. It also demonstrates you have a keen interest
in what the company plans to do in the future. So, you actually care about them. So, it shows you plan on staying with them
as well for a few years, which to be honest, is really attractive to virtually all employers
and hiring managers. They don’t want people coming through their
organization who are going to come for a few months and then leave, they what people are
going to stay there. And this question certainly demonstrates that. So, “Where do you think the company is headed
in the next five years?” Great question. Okay. Question number three: “Who do you consider
to be your top competitor and why?” Another smart question and here are the reasons
why. So, “Who do you consider to be your top
competitor and why?” Now this question shows you have an interest
in the performance of their organization, which puts you above the majority of candidates
in respect of mindset. So, you’re thinking ahead strategically about,
you know, the organization’s competitors and what you could do to help them. All businesses have competitors, it’s a fact,
and all staff should be working towards helping the business to outperform the competitor. And that’s what you’ll demonstrate – the interview
panel know that you are aware that they have competitors and you want to help them. Number three – the question shows you are
smarter than the rest of the candidates, simply because you care. Now, as I said right at the beginning, I’m

  • Hi Richard, thank you for the video. I was always in dilemma what should I as and all this resolved it.

  • At 68, still wanting to work, does age lessen your opportunity even with experience and how do you handle this in the interview?

  • The last question i have asked many times who is your competitor, and they always said me this information cant be shared with anyone. So i would rather not ask this, because all asks them this same question

  • Thank you so much for this and all your other videos and tutorials. I have been struggling with passing interviews so I always happy for your videos. Thank you for being so kind!

  • Do you think it's right to direct your questions to any a particular interviewer by mentioning their names?

  • These videos are absolutely remarkable! I am an ex-military HR supervisor that recently applied to a few federal HR management positions. I have already been deemed eligible for a very high ranking position according to my experience. I am expecting calls very soon. But unfortunately dealing with the military has left me Unprepared for such interviews! I have finally perfected my resume and now I’ve discovered that the interview process is a whole new animal! What would you do in my position? I have a lot to catch up on and a small amount of time!
