Interviews should be a two way process between an employer and a candidate. They present an opportunity for companies to attract outstanding talent that will fuel and help to deliver their vision and ambitious growth plans. The global economy is in decent shape and with talent in huge demand, the pool to choose from is shrinking.
Recruitment has become a sophisticated process and no longer allows employers to be complacent in their pursuit of engaging and ultimately successfully appointing high calibre candidates.
The interview is a critical part of any recruitment process and must be viewed as a two-way process for both employers and candidates to assess one another and decide if they are right for one another.
Whilst, as an employer, you should prepare a robust assessment process with insightful questions, you should also give candidates the same opportunity to ask you questions.
Below is a list of 40 questions that would be a good start to predict what candidates may ask you and expect you to answer.
You go into a job interview prepared to sell the interviewer on all your valuable skills, extensive career experiences, and eagerness to contribute to a new position. You’ve researched the job duties extensively and know the company inside and out. So what do you do when the interviewer asks, “What else do you want to know about the job?” Don’t panic. It’s not actually a trick question. The interviewer isn’t just asking you for questions as a formality. The questions you ask also play a large role in how they evaluate you for the position by giving you a chance to display your own curiosity, knowledge of the company, and greatest career priorities.
