5 Thoughtful Questions to Ask in a Job Interview

Many members of my career mentoring site tell me that interviewing is very stressful for them. They say that they often have a hard time coming up with questions when the interviewer asks, “What questions do you have for me?”

I think it is a good idea to go into any interview with a set of planned questions for the interviewer. That way, you’ll be ready with a response when asked. Here are five great questions you can ask an interviewer…

  • How long have you been with this company? What makes you stay?
  • How would you describe the work environment and culture here?
  • How will my performance be measured? How often will I get feedback?
  • What types of career opportunities can I look forward to here, providing that I perform well?
  • What kinds of learning and development opportunities does the company provide?

These questions demonstrate a sincere desire to get to know the company with which you’re interviewing. They also demonstrate that you are thinking long term, and are interested in a career with the company, not just a job. Use them, they work.
