Questions to Ask the Interviewer

Following are additional questions you may want to consider asking at an appropriate point in the interview:

"Why did you personally decide to work for this company?"

"What are the most important attributes for success in this position?"

"What are the key deliverables for the first year in this role?"

"What are the opportunities for growth/advancement for this position?"

"How is your company responding to competition in the _____ area?"

"What is the anticipated company growth rate over the next three years?"

For more questions you can ask, see our "Candidate Interview Questions."

Limit yourself to no more than one or two questions during an on-campus interview and no more than two or three questions during each company-site interview. Even if you are not able to get answers to all of your open questions before the offer is made, you will have one final opportunity at that point.
