Questions To Ask Hiring Managers At The End Of The Interview


Job Interview is a two way street, you are
asked about your experience and skills, and in return you also need to prepare questions for your potential employer. It’s not only about doing what is right
during the interview, it also helps you understand if this is a right place to work for you. I’ve interviewed so many candidates I’m
shocked that there is still a big percentage of candidates which don’t have any questions
at all… That is NOT the best way to approach your
potential professional future. You’ll be spending at least 40 hours a week
at your new job, you SHOULD have questions! I am Marat from Emmotion, myemmotion.com,

interviews, to gain confidence as a professional and learn to deal with corporate politics,

was helpful. So once the interviewer gives you a chance,
DO NOT hold back your questions for the company. Usually this opportunity comes at the end
of the job interview, with “Do you have any questions for me?” phrase. It is the perfect moment to start your own
evaluation of the employer. Question one would be finding out: 1. “Why is there a vacancy? Why is this position open?” This question will help you figure out if
things are truly going well at the organization. What happened to the previous person? Was this person promoted? Did this person leave to join another company? Or because they didn’t meet expectations? If the recruiter hesitates or becomes evasive,
that could already tell you a lot. Question two would be finding out about the
company culture but without asking it directly. 2. “What types of people are successful in
this company?” In this day and age, most companies usually
advertise their values and their company culture online. A lot of hiring managers state those by heart
because they are used to doing this. This particular question will let us understand
how the company’s environment impacts the employees. Finding out what type of employees last in
this place and which become successful, make the company values much more clear. The 3rd question will help us understand whether
you are the “right fit” for the role. 3. What would be an ideal candidate for this
job? The hiring manager will cite the goals in
terms of a matching profile for this role. The more you know about the their expectations
and metrics for success, the easier it will be for you to tailor the conversation and
demonstrate your fit. 4. What are the key challenges faced during the
first few months of the job? Remember, the interview is as much about you
assessing the company as it is about the interviewer assessing you. Smart interviewees will always want to know
what they are in for. Understanding the immediate challenges of
the job will clear up if it is a role where you can truly become an asset. 5. What do you enjoy most about working here? Since most of hiring managers ask “Why Do
You Want To Work Here?” this question is a great way to find out whether your image
of the company corresponds the reality. It’s the perfect question to catch the recruiter
a little off-guard and get an honest answer. Regardless of what they say, just by looking
at them you can probably evaluate how they truly feel about their company. Another indication of whether it’s the right
fit for you. 6. What is your timeline for the next steps? May I call or email you to follow up? Never leave an interview without finding out
the company’s timeline for making a decision, and how you should follow up afterwards about
your candidacy. It’s much better for your quality of life
and peace of mind to know what should you expect in the next few weeks. And if after the indicated timing you haven’t
heard back from the company, you can easily get in touch with them to follow up, as agreed. Remember: don’t ask about the salary, benefits
or vacations just yet. Wait until you are in the final steps of the
interview process, unless, of course, your interviewer brings it up first. If you ask the 6 mentioned questions you will
impress the interviewers and successfully evaluate whether the job is right for you. You’ll also manage your own expectations
for this recruitment process and the position during the nearest future. If you enjoyed this video, give it a thumb

  • On my last interview I made the mistake of saying that I have no questions. I told them that all the doubts I had were cleared during the interview. The result was that the days passed and they did not call me, and a few days ago I got an email saying they already found someone. Thanks for the information and i will use these questions in my next interview.

  • Thanks so much for these questions and for this. You can't imagine how much you help me in my preparation process. I was selected for a job interview and I was quite nervous because of my English spoken. It will be my first job English interview and this idiom is not my maternal language. Said that after to do some researches I found your channel. It was such as the sun on a cloudy day. Congratulation for your excellent work.

  • Thank you so much for your sharing your expertise. In addition, I went on an interview today and I did very well. I followed exactly what you said and the interviewer informed me that out of all of the candidates she interviewed, I was the only one that asked questions. Furthermore, she stated that it shows that I'm interested in this job. Moreover, at the end of the interview, I said that I want this job and everyone at the table smiled and laughed. As, I was walking out the door the supervisor said, You did a great job! I told her thank you and she told me to have a great weekend. Lastly, I followed up with a thank you letter.

  • I watched a few of your videos on interview tips and I swear you helped me so much to get a job! I smashed my last interview and got an offer two days later, thank you! Really glad I followed your tip on interviews, starting and salary negotiations, as it landed me a nice position and with a higher salary than I was expecting
