I was recently asked by a young professional what questions she should ask a hiring manager on an interview. She had been burned in the past by not learning enough about the company before taking the job, and was hoping to get some insight into the best way to ‘look under the hood’ of the company before accepting a job. Wow! We’ve all been there, right? There is nothing worse than taking a new job and finding out that the company was less-than-truthful in the interview.
I offered her the 4 Cs to good interview questions. I provided 2 questions for each one, totaling 8 killer questions that can help you:
1. Figure out if you are truly a match for the company.
2. Gain the respect of the hiring manager.
