One of the most daunting stages of any interview is the point where the interviewer asks you, “Do you have any questions for us?” It’s natural to feel intimidated at this point, but you should remember that this is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your interest in the role and the team/department. Your response can significantly impact the outcome of the interview. In this guide, we will discuss how to answer this question and the things to keep in mind when forming your response.

By asking these questions, you can get a sense of what kind of working environment to expect, how to fit in and how to grow your career within the organisation.

 

Ask About the Interviewer

  •  What inspired you to join the organisation/team?

Asking these questions can help you get a sense of the interviewer’s impression of the organisation and highlight the qualities they consider crucial for success in the role.
