How to interview your interviewer

Very often, right at the end, the interviewer would ask one final question: “Is there anything you would now like to ask me?” If you answered with a simple “no”, then you lost a chance to score some extra points. This is why it is highly recommended to prepare before the interview, and do your research about the company.

Below, for your reference, are some questions you may want to ask to demonstrate your interest in the role and of the company:

1. Demonstrate your in-depth knowledge of the company’s operations.

For example: “According to your website, your company is now building a new factory. Is it because you are enlarging the original line of operations, or are you planning to expand into something new?”

2. Enquire about the promotional opportunities and career development at the company.

For example: “I know that you have many professional training programs for your staff. Would you be able to tell me more about the promotional paths at your company and ways to build a career with you?”

3. Seek the interviewer’s advice in your own professional field.

This is a good opportunity to show how good you are at what you do, but you must exercise caution here – by asking this question you can expose gaps in your knowledge for the interviewer to see. But plan it out well, and you can definitely impress the interviewer.
