The interviewer is opening the floor for you to ask any questions that you may still have. Be sure to have thoughtful inquiries not answered from basic research and active listening. Perhaps some responsibilities or expectations need clarifying. You should always have at least one question prepared so that you appear engaged in the process.
Here are some sample questions:
- When would you like to have this position filled?
- How long has this role been vacant?
- Is this a replacement search or a newly created role?
- What is your favorite part about working here?
- What is the company's primary goal for this position in the next 12 months?
- Is there anything from my education that I can clarify for you?
- What do you see as the most significant change in this industry over the past three years?
- Is there any reason why you would not hire me?
"My biggest question for you is if you feel that I would be a fit for this job? Is there anything that I can clarify for you when it comes to my strengths, and how they will fit with your administrative needs?"
"I am very keen on this opportunity. When are you expecting to make your decision?"
"Thank you for asking! Could you share with me who your biggest client is at this time, and the services that you are providing for them? I would like to understand your client scope better."
"I would like to understand better the hours that you would like for me to fill, and also how soon you would like to fill this position? I am available to start anytime and would love to fill your need on weekends and evenings."
"I was hoping you could share with me your career path here and what you foresee mine looking like, should I be offered this position."
"Is there anything that I can clarify for you regarding my education, GPA, or coursework? I would like to know if any roadblocks would prevent you from hiring me for this role."
