Job Interview, Questions To Ask a Recruiter In An Interview


Okay, you have made it to the end of your interview and the interviewer says it is now your turn.  They want to know if you have any questions for them.  And most likely you do:  “How did I do” and “Are you going to hire me” – unfortunately you can’t ask either one.  But there are questions that you can ask to glean some information on how you performed and to determine if the company is a right fit for you. However, there are certain sets of questions that you may ask the interviwer in order to get more clarity or beat the rest who went out without a fight. Some of the questions that you should consider before walking in are listed below for a starting point. You can always invent more.

  • How would you define the culture of your company?
  • What waoukd you expect from me in the first six months?
  • How does the company support its employees in the professional capacity?
