Finishing strong is important. As they say, it’s important to leave a lasting impression, especially during job interviews. One way to do this is to ask the recruiter or hiring manager insightful questions.
As a Toronto recruitment agency, we know that asking good questions helps to reaffirm you’re a strong candidate. It also shows you did your homework and you have a genuine interest in the job.
So, what types of questions should you ask? Here are some good questions to ask to strongly finish your job interview:
1. Is There Anything You Would Like Me to Clarify?
This is a great question to ask because it gives the interviewer a chance to circle back to a question/ answer where they want to learn more. It also gives you the opportunity to remove doubt and improve your answer. If they don’t have anything they want you to clarify, you are probably in good shape.
2. What Do You Like Most About Working for the Company? What’s the Company Culture Like?
This type of question helps you build a connection with the interviewer. People like to be asked about their opinion. It also allows you to gain some insights into what it’s like to work for the company. You can get a better sense of the company culture and if it’s a place where you think you would fit in.
3. Can You Tell Me About What a Typical Day Would Be for the Role?
Obviously, you want to learn as much as possible about what the job is like. This question will give you a better idea of what you will be doing on a day-to-day basis. It also shows you are enthusiastic about the job. Insights into job tasks, responsibilities, and expectations are important to help you make a decision about whether the role is right for you.
4. What Are the Next Steps in the Interview Process?
If this information has not been communicated, it’s important to ask. It shows you’re interested. It also will let you know when you can expect to hear from the company and what you may need to do next. It could be another interview; it could be some type of skills test. Asking this question will help you be prepared for what is to come next.
