Job interviews are an opportunity for you to shine as a great candidate and learn more about the position and the company. Asking thoughtful questions is a way to do both. When a potential employer asks you if you have any questions, here are some ideas:
What does an average day look like for someone in this role?
What gets you most excited about the company’s future?
What qualities does someone need to have in order to be really successful in this role or at this company?
Is this a new role being created? If not, where is the last person who held this job moving on to?
How long have you been with this company? Has it changed since you’ve been here?
What’s your favorite part about working here?
Who will I be working with/working for? Are there other departments that work in close connection with this team?
Don’t ask questions just to ask them. Listen carefully to the interviewer’s response. Your genuine interest will impress them as much as your excellent resume and work experience.
