Going for an interview is like going for an examination. You have to be prepared and do some basic research about the company. Having no questions prepared may reflect badly upon your independent thought process.
Try visiting the companyâ€™s website to get more insight about the companyâ€™s business and culture. In addition, use Internet search engines to find out more information about the company, be it through seemingly inconspicuous blog entries or forum chatter.
Here are some questions that you can ask:
â€¢ What is your company staff size?
â€¢ How will my leadership responsibilities and performance be measured? By whom?
â€¢ Will there be training and workshop courses?
â€¢ Will there be opportunities to work in other regional offices?
Of course, some of your questions may have been answered in the process of the interview. If so, you can state so.
Â Note that these questions also depend on the position that you are applying for, and whether the information is already available on the companyâ€™s website. Asking a question that has already been answered in the companyâ€™s website will only reveal your lack of preparation and research.
Even if you run out of questions to ask, here are some questions you should not ask:
Â Â Â Â â€¢ How much will I be earning?
Â Â Â Â â€¢ What are the benefits or bonuses?
Â Â Â Â â€¢ When will I be promoted?
It will create an unfavourable impression of you, and your interviewer may be put off by your apparent show of overconfidence. These are questions that should only be brought up by your interviewer, or after you have been offered the position.
