Show Notes Chapter Markers

I’m often asked about the kinds of questions applicants should ask potential employers during an interview. Candidates often spend a lot of time preparing these questions because they realize that what they ask tells the interview a lot about their interest in the position. Therefore, you want your questions to be thoughtful and reflective of where you are at in the interview process. 

 

In this episode, I’m sharing why these questions are vital to your interview performance and how the questions you ask may make the difference between you being offered the job or not. Plus, I’ll share a few tips where you can gather information to formulate those questions, along with my favorite question to ask a hiring manager or interviewer. Plus, I’ll share what questions you should not ask. 

 

If you have ever wondered what makes a good question and what doesn’t, take a few moments to listen to this episode to help you prepare more intentionally for your next interview.
