Six Great Questions To Ask During A Job Interview

« Back to Medical News

Published: 30 Apr 2016      

Modern job interviews have become something of a two-way street in recent years, with most applicants being expected to be able to ask some questions of their own in addition to answering the ones that have been posed by the interviewer. As such, it helps to have a few questions that you want answers to in mind before you take part in the interview. These could be asked during the interview itself, if they flow well into the conversation, or during the end period when you are asked if you have any questions. Regardless, it is always a good idea to ask something.

Can You Describe a Typical Day?

This is a good question because it shows you are taking a direct interest in the day-to-day tasks that you are going to be asked to accomplish. It also challenges the interviewer to create an outline of what is expected of you beyond the often generic language that is used in job postings. Hopefully you learn more about how you are expected to interact with patients and fellow colleagues.

What Are The Biggest Challenges I’ll Face?

This acts as a great follow-up to the typical day question, especially if you feel as though that wasn’t properly covered by the interviewer. This again gives you a strong idea of the main tasks you will be asked to complete, allowing you to feel more prepared if you do happen to get the job.

What Are The Prospects For Career Advancement?

Most employers will be looking for people who have a certain amount of ambition, as this implies that they are willing to go that extra mile to make the improvements necessary to do better in the role. By asking about the potential for advancement within the career, you are already showing a level of foresight and initiative that many employers are going to find extremely attractive.

How Will I Be Evaluated?

Most workplaces have their own form of employee evaluation in place, so it helps to get an understanding of how this works for the company you’re interviewing for. Furthermore, should you get the role, you will now have an understanding of what to expect during your evaluation, which should mean that you don’t end up getting caught off-guard.

Why Do You Enjoy Working For This Company?

This is a great question to ask in counter to being asked why you want to work for a company. Of course, you should provide your own answer to that, instead of just launching straight into this question as a response. However, by asking this you will get a better idea of what the company has to offer to you and whether or not you will actually gel with the people there.

Do You Have Any Reservations About What I’ve Told You?

Some interviewers won’t necessarily want to bring up issues that they may have noticed during the interview, so it may be a good idea to ask about anything that they are worried about so that you get a chance to put such issues to bed.
