Why ask questions in a job interview?

Welcome to the first chapter of my Ultimate Guide to Asking Questions in a Job Interview.

In this section, you're going to learn why it is so critically important for you to prepare your own list of questions for the job interview and ask them, when the right time comes.

This is not any set of rules that, if you follow them, you will be able to trick or instantly impress the interviewer. Instead, the underlying motivation is related to truly preparing you better for the interview and making you a better candidate.

At the same time, having the right questions to ask during an interview will help you find the job and company that is in line with what you will appreciate in the long run.

After reading this section, you will have the right foundation to find the questions that you need to ask in your interview. The remaining chapters will give you lots of ideas

Chapter 1: Questions to ask during a job interview - Why ask questions in a job interview?

Easy way to fail an interview... and how to avoid it

Most jobseekers, when thinking about an interview, primarily focus on how they can answer all the questions that will be thrown their way. This consumes so much of their attention that asking their own questions at an interview is nearly forgotten.

This should not be the case! An interview is a two-way street. An interviewer expects that you will ask some questions and will often remember you more because of the questions that you ask, rather than because of the answers that you give.

Think for a moment about an extreme case of a job candidate not having any questions at all. What would you think about such a person, if you were the interviewer? He or she would probably appear lazy, unmotivated, and unprepared. This is exactly the opposite of someone you would want to hire as a manager.

You don’t want to appear like that unprepared applicant yourself. On the contrary, you want the future employer to see you in the best possible light.

Three reasons why you must ask questions in an interview

There are three primary reasons why you must ask questions in your job interview:

  1. Questions allow you to verify if the interviewer has any reservations about you. Consequently, you can remedy any concerns and leave the room with everyone feeling that you are a perfect candidate.
  2. Your participation through questions breathes life into the conversation and demonstrates that you are truly interested in the job and the company.
  3. Answers that you get allow you to make the decision if this is the place where you want to work. After all, you are interviewing your potential future employer as much as they are interviewing you.

There are thousands of possible questions that you can ask an interviewer. No matter which questions you decide to choose in the end, they should be in line with at least one of these three primary objectives listed above.

The following six chapters guide you through six different types of questions that you could ask in an interview. They all help you find if there is anything else you should explain or demonstrate to the interviewer, show your interest and make sure the company is right for you.

The next six chapters give you ideas for questions about:

  • Job
  • Company
  • Requirements
  • Expectations
  • People and culture
  • Next steps in the hiring process

But, before we go there – if you’re still not convinced with what I’m saying about asking questions in an interview, I’ve got something special for you.

15 career experts from USA, Europe and Australia shared with me their thoughts on why you, as a job seeker, should ask questions in an interview. Here’s what they say.


Mark S. Babbitt

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

Sure, asking questions at the end of your job interview shows you’ve done your homework. The best questions also show you’re engaged in the conversation and well-versed in the industry. Asked properly, they also show a certain amount of poise and confidence. But those aren’t the best reasons for asking well-constructed questions during your job interview.

The best reason: To show you’re more concerned about “we” than “me.”

At that critical point when you’re asked “Do you have any questions for me?” take the opportunity to inquire more about the team dynamics – and specifically your fit within the current operations.

What can you do to make an immediate impact on the team and our mission? What challenges does the team currently face and how can you best help? What is the current level of mentorship available, and how can you help foster a mentor-driven sub-culture within the team?

Let your competition ask the “me” questions about salary, advancement, vacation time and doggy day care. You stay focused on “we” – and win the interview.

Scott Anthony Barlow

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

You shouldn’t – at least not for the reason you think you should.

Although it may indicate engagement and interest in the company or people that you’re potentially working with, that’s not the biggest reason why you should ask questions. A much bigger reason would be the opportunity to learn more about the organization and the people you would be working with to ultimately decide for yourself whether or not it would be a good fit for YOU.

You should leverage the opportunity to ask questions not just at the end, but throughout the entire time you’re interacting and even outside of the interview. You can even contact other people in the organization. Come up with your own set of interview questions to determine whether or not they actually match up with what you want and need in a role and in an organization.

Kirk Baumann

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

Asking questions shows curiosity and interest.

Do your research on the company and the challenges they face. That will help inform the types of questions you can ask the interviewer.

Some basic questions I would recommend would simply be things like "what do you like most about working here?" or "what is your one piece of advice you give to new hires to help them succeed?"

At the end of the interview the last question should be, "how and when should I follow up with you?" This helps you understand the best method of communication and a basic timeline for when to follow up.

Ed Han

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

You should always ask questions in an interview! There are several reasons to do that. Here are the top three:

  1. You want to make sure you understand the position and how you're faring;
  2. it demonstrates your interest and gives you an opportunity to showcase research conducted about the employer and interviewer(s);
  3. it’s your chance to learn the organization's or team's culture.

Asking questions in an interview is a win-win for you and the employer. You get to understand better if this is the company where you want to work and the job that you want to have. The employer gains better insight into your thinking and can picture you in the new role better.

Why follow Ed:

By night, he is a wordsmith distilling years of experience with LinkedIn for various sites, including and The Balance. But no matter what time of day, he is a job seeker ally.

Susan P. Joyce

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

Typically, a job seeker with no questions is assumed to be either not interested in the job or not very bright. Employers aren't interested in a candidate who isn't really interested in them or the opportunity.

Specifically, asking your own questions will:

  1. Leave a positive and memorable impression on the interviewers, particularly important if many candidates are being interviewed and you are one of the first interviewees.
  2. Demonstrate your interest in the employer and the opportunity, preferably by referencing something you found in your research (e.g., a new product recently announced, a location, a competitor's name.
  3. Help you gain information you want or need to decide if the job and the employer are a good fit for you.
  4. Assist in diverting the interviewer's attention in uncomfortable situations (like after you have answered why you were fired from your last job).
  5. Turn the interview into more of a conversation than a grilling (wth you on the hotspot).

Generally, asking good questions shows that you are both interested and prepared, which will impress the interviewer, and the answers to those questions should also help you decide whether or not you want to work for that employer.

Erin Kennedy

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

It’s always smart to go to interview with questions of your own. Why? For a number of reasons, namely it shows your preparedness and knowledge of the company. Without these two you are unlikely to stand out, at least in the positive sense. If you really want to get the job, you must invest time into preparations.

Asking questions shows that you did your homework - you know what the company does, what they are looking for in the position, and what you will be doing. Having clear questions in mind allows you to have a real two-way conversation during the interview. Otherwise, you run the risk of spending most of the time talking about high-level topics, which will not leave a trace in the interviewer’s memory.

Hannah Morgan

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

The interview is a fact-finding mission! NOT an interrogation.

Conduct thorough research on the company to help you determine the answers you are looking for. In other words, what is most important to you in a job, company, manager and co-workers. During an interview, ask open-ended, non-leading questions to get the best answers, and add specific company questions as well.

By asking these open-ended questions, you allow the interviewer to speak about the issues that are most important to them- right now. Listen carefully to which path they chose to take as they answer. You may think you know the answers, but the interviewer might have a different logic.

Asking questions shows interest, that’s a good thing. Having these pre-written questions with you during the interview will remind you of what you are supposed to be asking. (Yes, you can bring a list of questions! The interviewer is reading off a list so why can’t you?) Those endorphins have a way of stealing your brain power and you may have difficulty remembering everything you wanted to ask.

The idea is to have a dialog with your interviewer. The flow should go something like this: They ask you a question. You provide an answer and ask them a question. A nice tennis match feel.

However, if the interview is inexperienced this can be quite challenging. They may do all the talking as a result of their insecurity. Listen dutifully. Be careful not to threaten their egos by interrupting too often.

Anna Peters

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

Any job candidate who does not ask any questions during their interview is red flagged. Period. Just as you would in building a friendship, asking good questions shows interest and genuine curiosity. If you end the interview saying, "No, I think I'm good," your interviewer will understand that you're just not interested in their opening, and probably end the relationship.

If you really want the job, you should feel some curiosity about what it's like to work there, who you'd work with most, how they describe their organizational culture, how they would measure your success, and what kind of skills would complement their team.

Mac Prichard

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

Asking your own questions in a job interview is important for five reasons.

First, it shows you’ve done your homework. Don’t be shy. Use your questions to show off the research you’ve done before the meeting. I love it when a candidate pulls out questions and notes.

Second, it shares your excitement about the job. It’s one thing to tell an employer, “I’m passionate about this opportunity.” It’s another thing to show them by asking thoughtful, probing questions.

Third, questions give you a chance to talk about your strengths. It’s okay to ask a leading question if it provides information about a topic the interviewer hasn’t raised yet.

Fourth, asking questions helps you learn more about the position, the employer, and what your life might look like if you get the job.

And finally, asking questions gives you the facts you need about the hiring process. There’s no reason you should be in the dark about what happens after the interview. Ask now so you don’t wonder later on!

Margaret Buj

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

A lot of candidates don't ask any good questions. Often people feel that the job has already been explained to them and they understand the requirements, therefore they have no further questions. This lack of questions, unfortunately, leads to several issues.

To hiring managers the candidate just doesn't seem to be interested enough in the job. Furthermore, even though the candidate might understand the job, he or she still does not fully understand the specific expectations of the manager. Consequently, job seekers who fail to ask questions in their job interview typically end up not getting the job.

Depending on what has already been discussed during the interview, it is important to ask about expectations, priorities and any special projects or assignments. Besides that I always recommend that people research the companies beyond what is covered on their websites. Whenever the candidate finds something personally interesting about the organization, it is important to ask about that during the interview.

Heini Hult-Miekkavaara

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

The core of a job interview is to gain a shared understanding of what is expected and possible to be achieved in the role being offered. This is as much of a responsibility of the interviewer as it is of the interviewee.

This ultimately is often only possible thanks to communication and dialogue between the employer and the potential employee.

You can consider yourself doing a favor for the company! By posing questions you can also clarify your competence and ambitions for the role not only to the interviewer, but also to yourself. Questions lead to answers.

Joseph Liu

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

When you ask the right questions in an interview, it allows you to:

  1. Gather useful information. When your interviewer asks you if you have any questions, it provides you with a unique, rare opportunity to get some personal, inside perspectives from someone who's working at the organization you're considering. Beyond the interview serving as a screening mechanism for a company, an interview gives you as a candidate access to someone within the company, something you wouldn't normally have. So don't miss out on this opportunity to get some concrete information you can't get by looking at a company website or public materials.
  2. Demonstrate you've done your homework on the organization. You can tell a lot about candidates by the type of questions they ask, so asking the right ones allows you to separate yourself from unprepared candidates who inquire about information that's publicly available. So focus on asking questions that could only be answered by people who have spent time working at the company. "What's one of the misconceptions you feel candidates have about working here?"
  3. Make a positive impression. Asking good questions also signals what factors matter to you as a candidate evaluating the opportunity at hand. This gives you an opportunity to differentiate yourself as a candidate interested in understanding what it takes to make a valuable contribution to the company. So avoid asking questions about what's in it for you (salary, hours, benefits), and instead focus on getting information that conveys a genuine interest in understanding what it takes to contribute. For example, "What are the common characteristics you observe in the people who have the greatest impact here?"

David Shindler

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

The job interview is a two-way street. Too many candidates fall into a fixed mindset that says, ‘I don’t want to make a mistake’. It puts you on the back foot and it feels like an ordeal. Instead, stand out by adopting a growth mindset that says, ‘I’m checking you out too, because I want to know if you’re right for me’. Get on the front foot and it will feel like an opportunity.

By asking questions you are no longer the center of attention, so it helps to take the pressure off. You show your listening skills if you pick up on what the interviewer says, reflect back, or summarize. Ask probing questions to dig beneath the surface of an issue. Closed questions (like ‘Do you…’ or ‘Is it…’) are useful when seeking a yes or no answer for clarification or to establish a fact. Open questions (like ‘What…’ and ‘How…’) usually prompt more information from the interviewer than intended.

Ask yourself what impression you want to leave. Then ask questions that shape that impression. The type of questions you ask reveal a lot to an interviewer. For example, hypothetical questions (like ‘What would happen if…’) can show off your analytical thinking or creativity. Show your initiative and interest in the company by revealing your knowledge about them in the question you ask. For example, ‘I see that you won an award for Best Customer Service this year. What do you expect from employees here?’

You have a golden opportunity at the end to make an impact when the interviewer asks, “Do you have any questions for us?” You can rescue an average interview or find out something to help you decide if this employer is the right one for you. Ask ‘Is there anything else you want from me to help you make a decision?’ It gives you a second chance to ensure they understood your answers, expand upon them, or to add something you meant to say but forgot.

Asking questions and listening well help you build rapport with the interviewer. And that’s critical because people hire people they like and who show their capabilities. Do them well and you’ll leave a great impression.

Karalyn Brown

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

You need to ask questions as this shows the interviewer that you are interested in the role. One thing employers hire on is your fit with their culture. Great questions show that you have done your homework and are keen to see where you can fit in and add value.

Interviews are a two way process.

Just as an employer is assessing you as a candidate, you need to be assessing the company, and whether you have the capability to perform the role. If the role description is unclear, or it is a newly created role, questions can help you clarify the expectations an employer will have of you - and make the difference between success and failure.

If there are many suitable candidates for a role, the quality of your research and your questions may be the thing that points to you as the perfect candidate.

Jane Jackson

Why job candidates should ask questions in a job interview?

Having coached thousands of career transition clients over the past 17 years, a common question I'm asked is whether it is appropriate to ask questions during a job interview. I have found that asking questions during a job interview will help a candidate to stand out from the crowd.

When attending a job interview, all candidates will answer the questions posed to them, however, not all candidates will ask questions of the interviewer. This could be due to a lack of preparation, nerves, or simply a lack of interest in the role.

As a candidate in a job interview, it is essential to demonstrate a keen interest in the role, the company, and the people with whom you may work with. This interest can be conveyed in the way that you respond to behavioural questions, the enthusiasm and passion that you exude, your body language and tone of voice.

In order to make an even greater impression during the interview, the questions you ask will help to demonstrate your understanding of the role, the confidence you have in yourself by asking for clarification where necessary, and also that you are capable of projecting yourself into the role. By asking questions the interviewer will know that you are willing to learn, keen to understand the specific requirements of the job and are interested.

During my time as a recruiter, candidates who showed initiative and could think on their feet always impressed me. Employers hire not only for skills and knowledge but also for potential. A curious and interested employee is one who usually is more productive and motivated.

So, ask questions in interviews! Find out all you need to know so that you can make an informed decision about the position. You may find that once your questions are answered, that the role is not the best fit for you or you may have found your dream role!
