You're nearing the end of your interview and the interviewer asks, "Do you have any questions for us?" 👇👇👇
This is a critical part of the interview, not only for you to find out any information you want to know, but more importantly, a chance for you to continue to sell yourself and showcase your value add. Asking thoughtful and insightful questions will ensure that the panel knows you're interested and will help you understand if the role and company are the right fit for you.
ALWAYS, ALWAYS ASK QUESTIONS! (If given the chance)
💥 PRO TIP: Always respond to their answer. This creates 2-way dialogue and affirms that the information they have given you is interesting / valid etc.
A candidate that has no questions runs the risk of the leaving the interviewers feeling that you haven't done your homework or worse, that you aren't that interested in the role.

⭐ What do you think are the top 3 qualities of an employee in this role?
