Questions to ask at Interview

As you prepare to showcase your skills and qualifications, remember that interviews are not just about impressing the interviewer.  They also provide you with an opportunity to evaluate the company and determine if it aligns with your career goals and by asking thoughtful questions you will demonstrate your interest in the role.  Below are some examples of questions you could ask to help you make an informed decision.

Success and Performance 📈 🏆

Understanding how the company measures success and performance can provide insights into its priorities and expectations. It also gives you an idea of how your own progress and achievements will be evaluated, which can be valuable for setting goals and managing expectations.



Teamwork and Collaboration 👨‍💼🌍

Enquire about the company’s approach to teamwork, collaboration, and cross-functional projects. Understanding how teams work together and whether there are opportunities for collaboration can help you assess if the company’s dynamics align with your preferred work style.



Questions about Them 👥👨‍💼
