"Do you have any questions for me?"

In an interview, the interviewee is usually asked, "Do you have any questions for me?" In an Inc. article, Johnson & Johnson Vice President of Talent Acquisition, Sjoerd Gehring, gave the following as the best candidate questions.

  1. Why does this role matter to the growth of the company? ["This question showed me the candidate was interested in making an impact beyond their role and how they'd fit into the future plans of the business," said Gehring.]
  2. What do you like most about working here? [Gehring said, "We ended up having a great conversation about how rewarding a career at J&J can be, both personally and professionally."]
  3. Do you have any reservations about me or my qualifications? [In Gehring's case, "...the candidate was actually able to mitigate the concerns I had about a large, unexplained gap on their resume."]

At the end of a job interview, a candidate's questions can be a way to determine their fit for the role and for the organization.
