10 Interview Questions You Must Ask If You Want To Get Hired

Question for investors, will this all blow over and is Toyota cheap.

Many job seekers walk into an interview ill-prepared, expecting the employer to ask all the questions.

Wrong move, says Ford R. Myers, author of “Get The Job You Want, Even When No One’s Hiring,” (John Wiley & Sons, 2009).

“Asking smart questions will help the job seeker sound articulate, well-prepared and genuinely interested in working for the organisation,” says Myers.

Myers recommends asking the following questions to find out as much as possible about the job and leave a good impression.

1. Can you give me more detail about the position's responsibilities?

2. Where do you see this position going in the next few years?

3. How can I most quickly become a strong contributor within the organisation?

4. What are the most challenging aspects of the job for which I am being considered?

5. How will my performance be evaluated, and at what frequency?

6. What particular aspects about my background and experience interest you?

7. What makes you think I will be successful in this job? What causes you concern about my candidacy?

8. Now that we've had a chance to talk, how does my background measure up to the requirements of the job? To the other candidates?

9. Where are you in the hiring process? What's our next step?

10. If I don't hear from you within (time period), would it be OK to call you?
