BLUF: What do you think of these three questions that this LinkedIn author recommends candidates should ask in interviews?
Like many of you, I purchased the Interview Series and found the advice given very helpful -- certainly didn't disappoint. I particularly liked the suggestions to prepare for the opportunity to ask questions in interviews. As someone who has interviewed roughly as often as I've been interviewed, I can totally confirm such questions are a great opportunity to stand out (either way, positive or negative...).
I just came across a LinkedIn article on the subject. The author recommends three particular questions:
- What qualities are you looking for in the person you are hoping to appoint?
- What scope is there for personal development at your company?
- Is there anything you have seen in the other people on the shortlist that you have not seen in me?
The article also recommends to "ask as many questions as the interviewer does" (raising my eyebrows).
What do you think of this guidance?
