Prepare Your Questions

Write on a small card any questions that you want answered – make sure you have at least three good questions – at least when you are asked you are well prepared – you have to stand out from the other candidates. Sample questions could include:

  • Why is this position available?
  • What type of training will be offered to the person in this position?
  • What obstacles must be overcome for the person in this position to succeed?
  • What are your goals for this position?
  • How will my performance be evaluated?
  • What opportunities are there for growth in the next 12 months? Two years? Five years?

Do not ask what the salary is, what the pension is, and what holidays you get.
Your only job at the interview is to win it – they will offer you the position if they want you, and then we can negotiate the best terms.
