Questions from the Candidate

Business WomanInterview Question: “What Questions Can I Answer for You?”

Consider asking this question early on in the interview, perhaps even altering this slightly to say “What information do you want to secure before you leave here today?” Now listen carefully. Pay close attention to what comes first, early on, vs. those questions that come somewhere later in the conversation. A candidate that asks you about your work style, the co’s success to date, what makes a successful employee in your eyes, etc., all within the first few questions is probably more desirable as a candidate than the one that starts by asking about vacation time and flexible hours. Many times allowing the candidate to guide the discussion from the get go will tell you a great deal about the person sitting across from you.
