Interview the Interviewer

I recently saw a social media post suggesting job candidates ask the interviewer during an interview what they did for their employees during Covid-19. I was surprised by the number of people who said that asking a potential employer that question or any other question at the end of an interview is a bad idea.

I’ve sat in countless interviews, and I can tell you that the hiring manager or interview team is usually perplexed when a candidate doesn’t ask any questions at the end of an interview. That is a prime opportunity to ask questions to start painting a picture of what the culture is like, find out why the position is open because there’s usually a not so good reason if the position is always vacant, and any potential opportunities for advancement or a career path. The interview process is not only an opportunity for the company to see if you’re a good fit for the position, but it’s an opportunity to see if the company is a good fit for you as well.
