What are some good interview questions to ask that will increase your chances of getting the job?

Any question that shows your enthusiasm for the role and the company, and that emphasizes your proactive approach during the interview process.

Here are some ideas:

Questions about the role

  • What kind of candidate in your opinion would thrive in this role?
  • What would you see as the top priorities in the first few months in this role?
  • Tell me a little bit about the corporate culture and what kind of employees you consider a good fit for this company.

Questions focused on strategy

  • What is your vision for this team, how do you see its role in the company change or grow in 2 (or 5) years from now?
  • Can you give me an example of how senior leadership has supported this team in the past year?
  • When you came on board, what were the challenges you faced in the first 6 months in the role?

Questions about the interview and asking for feedback

  • Based on our conversation, which strengths or skills I shared with you would make me a good fit for the team?
  • If you had any reservations about hiring me for this role, what would those be?
  • What are the next steps; when do you expect to reach a decision? Are you looking to extend an offer in the next week or so, or do you expect the process to take a month or longer?
