Asking the right questions during
your interview is key to
demonstrating your interest in the
role and convincing the interviewer
that you would do the job well.
Here are 15 questions, divided up
into five sections, that will create a
conversation during your interview
and will give you a good chance of
progressing to the next stage of the
recruitment process.
15 QUESTIONS TO ASK
YOUR INTERVIEWER
haysplc.com/viewpoint
QUESTIONS TO ASK
ABOUT THE ROLE
The answer to this question will
reveal whether the role has
expanded to absorb modern
practices and technology over time.
The question shows you are keen
to keep pace with advances, and
that you have a positive attitude to
change.
1. Is this role new? If not,
how has it evolved?
This is another classic question,
which shows you have career
ambitions and want to get on in the
world.
It will also reveal something about
how talent is nurtured and promoted
within the organisation.
2. Is there scope for career
progression?
This is a tactful way of determining
exactly what skills and experience
are required for the role.
You can use the interviewer’s
appraisal of your predecessor to
gauge exactly what it is you need to
do to take the role to the next level.
3. Can you tell me a bit
about the predecessor
of the role?
This is the best question to help you
visualise yourself in the role; you
can then decide whether it’s for you
or not.
4. What does a typical day
look like?
If possible, try and research your
colleagues before the interview
process.
If not, or on top of that, try and find
out as much as possible about them
from the interviewer.
5. Can you tell me more
about the team?
QUESTIONS TO ASK
ABOUT THE TEAM
It can be difficult to understand the
full extent of your role from a job
description, so use the interview to
establish which departments you’ll
be liaising with most often.
You can then decide whether your
skillset is well suited to the role or
not.
6. Who are the key
stakeholders?
This question signals your interest
in working as a team as you want to
know where you will fit in and
contribute to the organisation’s
long-term success.
7. How does the team fit
into the overall structure
of the company?
This question will help you discover
the organisation’s priorities, which
you can then compare against your
own.
It will also help you understand
what the business expects from
their employees.
8. What constitutes
success for the team and
the role?
QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT
YOUR INTERVIEWER
Understanding your interviewer’s
background and why they were
selected to work for the employer
can help shape your own answers
about what you might bring to the
role.
9. What’s your
background?
This question can tell you a lot
about the work culture at the
organisation.
It can also be a way of
communicating your desire to work
in a positive environment, and that
you’re someone who likes to get the
best out of yourself.
10. What’s it like to work
here?
QUESTIONS TO ASK
ABOUT THE BUSINESS
If you know the business has
recently launched a new product or
service, for example, you could work
this into the question by asking how
the new product is being received –
showing them that you’ve done your
research.
11. What challenges and
opportunities does the
business face?
It’s good to get an idea of how long
employees stay with the employer,
so you can gain a clear insight into
how well they are treated –
although high staff retention isn’t
always a good thing, as outlined in
this blog.
12. How long do
employees remain with
the business?
QUESTIONS TO ASK
ABOUT LEARNING AND
DEVELOPMENT
This is a searching question that
signals your focus on building your
career.
You’re signalling that you want to
know there’s a structured, pro-
active approach to assessing
individual performance, and that
you won’t be forgotten about.
13. How often will my
performance be reviewed?
This is a standard question but an
important one to ask, not only for
your own sake but also to show
you’re interested in acquiring new
skills which will be of benefit to you
and the organisation.
14. What training
opportunities are available?
Don’t forget to ask what comes next!
You can then prepare yourself
thoroughly for the next stage of the
hiring process.
15. What’s the next step?
Good luck!
Ask the right questions and there is
a good chance you will be able to
advance in the recruitment process,
and what’s more, you’ll know if you
want to or not.

opportunities, you may find these

  • 3. The answer to this question will reveal whether the role has expanded to absorb modern practices and technology over time. The question shows you are keen to keep pace with advances, and that you have a positive attitude to change. 1. Is this role new? If not, how has it evolved?
  • 4. This is another classic question, which shows you have career ambitions and want to get on in the world. It will also reveal something about how talent is nurtured and promoted within the organisation. 2. Is there scope for career progression?
  • 5. This is a tactful way of determining exactly what skills and experience are required for the role. You can use the interviewer’s appraisal of your predecessor to gauge exactly what it is you need to do to take the role to the next level. 3. Can you tell me a bit about the predecessor of the role?
  • 6. This is the best question to help you visualise yourself in the role; you can then decide whether it’s for you or not. 4. What does a typical day look like?
  • 7. If possible, try and research your colleagues before the interview process. If not, or on top of that, try and find out as much as possible about them from the interviewer. 5. Can you tell me more about the team?
  • 9. It can be difficult to understand the full extent of your role from a job description, so use the interview to establish which departments you’ll be liaising with most often. You can then decide whether your skillset is well suited to the role or not. 6. Who are the key stakeholders?
  • 10. This question signals your interest in working as a team as you want to know where you will fit in and contribute to the organisation’s long-term success. 7. How does the team fit into the overall structure of the company?
  • 11. This question will help you discover the organisation’s priorities, which you can then compare against your own. It will also help you understand what the business expects from their employees. 8. What constitutes success for the team and the role?
  • 12. QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT YOUR INTERVIEWER
  • 13. Understanding your interviewer’s background and why they were selected to work for the employer can help shape your own answers about what you might bring to the role. 9. What’s your background?
  • 14. This question can tell you a lot about the work culture at the organisation. It can also be a way of communicating your desire to work in a positive environment, and that you’re someone who likes to get the best out of yourself. 10. What’s it like to work here?
  • 15. QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT THE BUSINESS
  • 16. If you know the business has recently launched a new product or service, for example, you could work this into the question by asking how the new product is being received – showing them that you’ve done your research. 11. What challenges and opportunities does the business face?
  • 17. It’s good to get an idea of how long employees stay with the employer, so you can gain a clear insight into how well they are treated – although high staff retention isn’t always a good thing, as outlined in this blog. 12. How long do employees remain with the business?
  • 18. QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
  • 19. This is a searching question that signals your focus on building your career. You’re signalling that you want to know there’s a structured, pro- active approach to assessing individual performance, and that you won’t be forgotten about. 13. How often will my performance be reviewed?
  • 20. This is a standard question but an important one to ask, not only for your own sake but also to show you’re interested in acquiring new skills which will be of benefit to you and the organisation. 14. What training opportunities are available?
  • 21. Don’t forget to ask what comes next! You can then prepare yourself thoroughly for the next stage of the hiring process. 15. What’s the next step?
  • 22. Good luck! Ask the right questions and there is a good chance you will be able to advance in the recruitment process, and what’s more, you’ll know if you want to or not.
