The interview has gone really well, but it's not over yet...
"Do you have any questions?"
Interviews are a chance for employers to ask candidates about themselves to get a good idea about what they’re like as a person & as a potential employee. It is also a great opportunity for the candidate to ask questions of the employer. These ending questions show interest in the role and will help give the candidate a good idea of what the company is like to work for.
We have compiled a list of topics to give you an idea of what kind of questions to ask. It’s a good idea to have 3 or 4 questions ready to ask at the end of the interview just in case some of your questions have already been asked during this time.
