What’s a good company question to ask after the interview?

everything I need to know is on the company website so I’m not sure what I can ask without sounding redundant or unprepared.

Knowing how to ask and answer these interview questions will put you a step ahead

HELLO, JOB SEEKERS,

I just found this online for a friend - this is from our local university's web site to assist new graduates with job interview skills. He is trying for an advanced maintenance/security position there Friday, and I know he is going to benefit if he takes the time to sit down and consider these questions, and/or write out the answers to make them easier to recall. They say there are three ways we remember - by hearing, by reading, and by writing. And if we can read something, then read it out loud, then write it, we are three times more likely to remember it. Anyway, he had mentioned to me he feels weak in his interviewing skills, so I am hoping this helps him out, and you all, too! I know they might not apply to every job out there, but it's good to do the mental work first to feel more confident, just in case.

........................................................................................................................................................

Sample Interview Questions

Prepare and practice for the interview by reviewing the most common interview questions outlined here.

Assessment:

What are your long-range and short-range goals and objectives and how are you preparing yourself to meet them? What rewards are the most important to you in your chosen occupation? What expectations do you have in terms of earnings in five years? What do you consider to be your strengths and weaknesses? How would you describe yourself?

Attitude:

What qualifications do you have that make you think you will be successful in this field? What do you think it takes to be successful in our organization? In what ways can you contribute to our organization? Describe the relationship that should exist between a supervisor and employee. What factors are most important to you in your job?

Your education:

Describe your most rewarding college experience. Why did you select your college or university? What motivation led you to choose your major/field? What college subjects did you enjoy least? Why? If you could, how would you have planned your academic study differently? Why? Knowledge of employer

Why are you interested in working for us? What do you know about our organization? Do you prefer a small, medium, or large organization? What criteria are you using to evaluate the organization for which you want to work? Do you have a geographical preference? Why?

Behavioral questions:

Tell me about a time when you had to organize a project under tight time frames. How did it turn out? Give me an example of when you had to deal with an irate customer/client. How did you handle it? Describe the last time you used teamwork to solve a problem. What did you do and what was the outcome?

Sample Questions To Ask Employers:

To ask questions during your interview, use the following questions as a guide.

What qualifications/personal qualities do you want in a candidate for this job? What are your company's short- and long-term goals, problems, and challenges? Will I be expected to travel? How frequently and for what duration? What computer/library facilities are available?
What administrative and technical support will I have? Will I supervise others? How much supervision will I receive and who will my supervisor be? What other departments and people will I be interacting with? Will I receive formal or informal training? Please describe. .......................................................................................................................................................

Behavioral Interviewing for Jobs and Internships:

Behavioral interviewing is widely used in most fields. Review the following principles and sample questions to prepare for your interview.

Employers have identified specific behaviors/skills that are important to the job. Their questions are designed to determine if and when you have successfully demonstrated those behaviors in your past. Cite specific evidence/proof of your successes to demonstrate that your experience was pertinent.

Examples of behavioral questions:

Tell me about a time when you had to organize a project under tight time frames. How did it turn out? Give me an example of when you had to deal with an irate customer/client. How did you handle it? Describe the last time you used teamwork to solve a problem. What did you do and what was the outcome? ...........................................................

Sample Post Interview Thank You Letter:

What questions will the interviewer ask?

We read/hear this all the time! And we're also often are asked how to best prep for an interview. So I thought I would address these both together (from a “what questions to prep for” perspective) and share something with you that I recently came across when researching what the most common interview questions are. Here's what I found.. https://www.uchastings.edu/career-office/docs/26.InterviewQuestions.pdf Now keep in mind that a number of these are directed towards a specific role, but the majority of them are universal. I hope this helps in your ongoing quest of how to prep in order to be able to clearly answer the questions in your interviews this week!

Good luck out there!
