Your Secret Guide to Good Job Interview Questions

You should go into your job interview with a couple of good job interview questions ready to ask. After all, the job interview is more than just an interrogation of you, the candidate, by the interviewer. In fact, the very word “interview” implies that there will be a fair bit of exchange between, or “inter,” the two participants. Before you go into the meeting ready to ask just anything, though, spend a little bit of time thinking about what it is that you really need to ask the interviewer, and what is appropriate. Every aspect of your interview should serve to convince the interviewer that you are the best candidate for the position, and that includes the questions that you ask.

Determining good job interview questions is frequently a matter of knowing how to recognize a bad interview question when you think of it. In fact, as long as you are able to avoid certain categories of questions, chances are your interview questions will be just fine. The first category to avoid is any questions that could easily be answered by some basic research and knowledge of the company and position. Though no interviewer expects you to come into the interview with the same level of knowledge as an employee, you should at least know the basics. That includes what the position does, and how that fits into the department, company and industry as a whole. As an extreme negative example, imagine the effect of a candidate who comes in and asks “what does this company do?”

The second category of questions to avoid to ask good job interview questions is the category of money. Don’t ask how much the job pays, don’t ask how much the other workers make, and don’t ask how much the interviewer makes. During the interview, candidates and interviewers maintain the pleasant fiction that money does not play a role in the decision making process. Both parties try to act as if they are only motivated by professionalism, personal growth and a desire to meet challenges. Play along. In any event, the longer you can put off talking about salary, the better you will be able to research and determine how much you can reasonably expect.

The last category of questions to avoid to ask good job interview questions is any question that requires the interviewer to disparage his or her team. If you ask questions that imply that he or his current team are not performing adequately, that will not be appreciated by the interviewer. In the first place, even if that is the case, he or she is not likely to share that information with you. In the second, he or she will resent the inference that you have made about him and his team. Aside from these big areas, you should feel free to ask more or less any questions that you want, and in fact displaying a lively and curious intellect will actually help your case to get hired.
