Interviews are a way to get to know you, or at least that’s what’s supposed to happen.
The interview process is the time for you both to read the fine print. Check the labels. Make sure you’re getting what you pay for.
So, when it comes to asking questions of the company, don’t falter and try and ask the textbook questions. Really ask what is important. You are interviewing them. Go over the basics, of course. But also ask what kind of social activities the company takes part in. Do they support volunteering. How do teams work together. Is it common to express your opinion. How organized is the business plan. What is the company doing to make sure they grow in the market. These are important questions. Heck, even ask the secretary how her day is going and why she likes the company. Do a Google search to see what employees are saying. It can be valuable stuff.
Advice I’ll keep in mind as I continue my search for the perfect job… or at least the one that’s not ruled by a demon. 😉
