What’s the most important question in an interview?

https://forge.medium.com/the-most-important-question-in-a-job-interview-and-how-to-answer-it-46a0c39d656d – this is an interesting article, but I have a different opinion about how to respond to this question. When the interviewer asks you if you have any questions, the very best way is something like this: “Hey yes, definitely! Please could I ask a bit about you and your career? How did you […]

  • I just read an interesting article about the most important question in a job interview being "Do you have any questions?" I agree that this is a super important question, but I have a slightly different opinion from the writer about how to respond to this question.  When the interviewer asks you if you have any questions, the very best way is something like this: “Hey yes, definitely! Please could I ask a bit about you and your career? How did you get into business, what was about you that got you hired and how did you choose the business areas that you have? I would love to learn a bit more about you in person if you have time for that!” The point about this is to engage the interviewer personally. Truth is, by the end of the interview, the interviewer has already made up his or her mind, but personal engagement is probably your best chance at swinging it in your direction.  As ever, all comments welcome!
