Lately I have been thinking about great questions candidates have asked me during an interview. Your potential employer is asking you questions to learn more about you and your skills. In return, you need to prepare questions to ask your potential employer. Do your homework! Research the company, industry, and department you are applying for. I am always impressed when a candidate prepares questions themselves. What are some questions you could ask to find out if the job is right for you? Here area a few examples;

  • What do you like best about working for Children's Mercy Hospital?
  • What do you think are the most important qualities for someone to excel in this role?
  • What are the next steps in the interview process?
  • Can you tell me more about the day-to-day responsibilities of this job?

Questions to avoid;

  • How do I compare to the other candidates you've interviewed for this role?
  • How many people are interviewing for this position?
  • What's the salary?
  • When do I get vacation?

Be prepared and good luck with your interview!
