Asking questions to the people interviewing you is more important than you think! Answering their questions is key but what you ask can have an impact on whether you land the new job or not. Doing this will help you find out if the role/company is a good fit for you.
We are going to give you a few examples of questions you can ask during an interview!
1) What are your plans, if any, for the transition from remote to in person?
Asking this is important because depending on what your preference is for work post-COVID (in-person, remote, hybrid), you will want to know what the company plans to do. Committing to a new work environment takes a lot of parts falling into place, it’s best to have clarity from yourself and your potential employer.
2) What does success look like in this role?
Every position is different. A different company with different expectations which in turn means a different path to success. Asking this question with confidence will show your potential employers that you are ready to take challenges head-on.
3) Has the company added any resources to help the staff navigate through the obstacles of the last year?
A company being transparent about this tells a lot about them and their company culture. The last year has shown what companies will do to support their staff, which can be eye-opening for some. Making sure you’re committing not only your physical but mental health to a good company will be beneficial to both sides.
These are just a few examples of what you can ask during an interview but there are plenty more. Before an interview, reflect on what’s important to you in a company (values, benefits, morals, etc.) and try your best to gauge how the company aligns with those!
