The opportunity to ask questions during your administrative interview is important. This helps determine whether the role and culture are a good fit for you.
Asking questions relevant to your goals, interests, and preferences helps decide whether you are interested in working for the company. Writing down your questions in advance and reviewing them before your interview helps them stay fresh in your mind.
If the interviewer provides a short amount of time to ask questions, choose the two or three questions that are most important to you. You can ask the other questions if you receive a job offer.
Consider asking these five questions during your administrative interview.
1. How would you describe the company’s culture?
Asking about the company’s culture shows you want to find the right fit. It also helps you learn how well the organization prioritizes employee satisfaction.
2. How do you feel the company defines and demonstrates its values?
Talking about the company’s values demonstrates you researched the organization and want to ensure its values align with yours. This also helps you understand the company’s internal workings to determine whether you want to join the organization.
3. Can you share more details about the day-to-day responsibilities of this role?
Uncovering more information about the job duties and responsibilities provides a clearer picture of a typical day. This helps determine which hard and soft skills and strengths are essential for success and whether the position is right for you.
4. What are the expectations for the first thirty to sixty days in this position?
Learning what you would be expected to accomplish in the first month or two helps you tailor your qualifications to the role. Also, understanding the metrics for success lets you know what you should focus on achieving if you are hired.
5. Is there anything else I can provide to help with your decision?
Offering to share additional information or provide clarification ensures the interviewer understands your qualifications and desire for the role. It also helps you perform your best to show your suitability for the position.
