How to properly assess a potential opportunity during the interview process.
Interviews can be nerve-racking affairs. It’s easy to get so caught up in crafting the perfect responses to your interviewer’s questions that you forget to ask questions of your own.
Remember, an interview is a two-way street. As a candidate, you’re not there to simply answer the hiring manager’s inquiries. It’s important to take a consultative approach and ask questions that help you understand how the company operates, whether the position is a good fit for you and your goals, and if the organization is stable.
This is even more important if you’re job hunting while employed. No matter how miserable your current position may be, focus on finding the right opportunity rather than simply escaping your current situation.
Here are some questions you can ask to get a deeper understanding of an organization and position yourself as the right candidate for the job.
