Ask the Interviewer Questions Similar to the Ones They Ask You

An interview is a two-way street where you and the interviewer both ask questions to see if the match is appropriate. When it’s time for you to ask questions, remember that you can use the same questions they asked you.

Not literally, of course, or if the question has nothing to do with the company. But as Debra Benton points out on her personal branding blog, whatever they ask you is probably interesting to them.

If they asked: “Tell me about yourself,” then later in the conversation you can: “I read about your company, talked to people, I know that you have a great reputation … but you are inside, tell me about the company from your experience ? “

If they ask, “What are your strengths and weaknesses,” later you might ask, “What are you most proud of in the organization right now … and in what areas do you want to see change?”

If you don’t want to feel like you are imitating the interviewer, add other important questions to ask the company, such as how it supports your core values .
