Interview the interviewer.

What’s the easiest way to emphasise your motivation during a job interview?

Typically, you will have a chance to ask some smart and thought-provoking questions at the end of the interview. Think of this time as your moment to shine.

Some examples:

To show your enthusiasm for the role:

  • How are you going to assess performance for the position?

  • What type of background would be best suited for this position?


To show real interest in the company:

  • What are the biggest challenges facing the business right now?

  • How are you adapting to (some specific change) in the market?


To prove that you think long-term:

  • Can you tell me a bit more about your 3-year strategy?

  • What are the prospects for professional growth and development?

  • What is the career path for someone in this position?

Something extra:

Ask about your interviewer’s story or point of view.

  • What do you appreciate about this company? 

  • What do you think of the future of the team? 

  • What values do you live by in your team?

This is your chance to leave a lasting impression. To differentiate yourself from others. To reiterate your interest in the role and the company.
