When you're in a job interview, it would be a huge mistake to not ask the hiring manager any questions. And when it comes to interview questions, some are better than others at demonstrating your value and enthusiasm for the job you're interviewing for. But which question will make you stand out from the competition the most?


If you want to impress hiring managers, this is the best question to ask during a job interview...

What Would I Need To Do In This Role To Make Your Job Easier?

@j.t.odonnell BEST QUESTION to ask on a job interview! #interviewtips#careertiktok#jobinterview#interview#jobinterviewtips#jobinterviewquestions#edutok#jobs♬ original sound - J.T. O'Donnell

One of the best questions you can ask during a job interview is: Tell me how the job that I'm applying for interacts with your job and what would I need to do in this role to make your life easier?

You're not being hired for the heck of it. You're there to solve problems, alleviate pain, and, yes, make the lives of the people you're working with easier. So, when you ask the hiring manager (your boss or potential co-workers) this question, you're showing that you understand this, and you're giving them the opportunity to tell you exactly what you'd have to do in order for them to want to pick you for the job.

If you ask this question in your next job interview, I can guarantee the hiring manager will be very, very impressed, and you'll be sure to stand out from other job candidates.
