How to Answer

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?
