When a company has advertised a role, either themselves or through a procurement recruitment agency like talentdrive.co.uk they will have developed a job description and a person specification that will allow them to create the kinds of questions that they want to ask in the interview. At the end of interviews, there is usually an opportunity for the candidate to ask the interviewer or panel of interviewers some questions. It is always a good idea to have questions prepared and here are a few of them for you to have a look at.
- Can you give me more information about the day to day requirements for the job role? – this question shows the interviewer that you want to know as much as you can about the position and it will also help you to decide whether you think you are going to enjoy the job, should you be successful.
- What are the training and progression opportunities in the company? – this question identifies to the interviewer that you are looking for a career with the company, rather than a job that you are going to stay in for a year or two. It will also help to show you whether you will have long term career prospects if you work for them.
- What do you like about working for the company? – this question will give you a real insight into the inner workings of the company. When people enjoy their job and like working for the company they will happily tell you about it. If people are more reserved or find it hard to answer that question it might give some other insights into whether the company will be a good fit for you.
