What to ask an employer during your job interview?
When you are giving a job interview, it often happens that the interviewer asks you,”is there anything that you want to know about us?”.
At this point, you must take full advantage of the opportunity to show that you have done your homework about the company and ask questions to determine whether or not the job will suit you.
However, your questions must be well thought out and should not be random.
Apne questions bhi utna hi soch kar poochein jitna ki aap interviewer ke questions ke answer dete waqt sochte hain. The answers will show your knowledge of the company, aapki soch kaisi hai, aur yeh bhi ki aap is job mein kitne interested hain.
Given below are a few questions that you should NEVER ask:
Aapki company kya karti hai?
Will I have to work late hours?
Chhutti kab milegi aur kitni?
When will I get an increment?
Will I get conveyance allowance to come to office?
Your questions should be about the company and the job and not about your personal benefits. Interview ka purpose hota hai to know if you are a good fit for the job and vice versa.
Kai baar candidates keh dete hain,“No, I don’t want to ask anything.” This shows that you have not thought about the job and have come for the interview unprepared. Ya aap mein questions poochhne ka confidence nahin hai. Both the scenarios can go against you.
So do your homework and go prepared to ask questions. Read about the company, visit their website if they have one and ask intelligent questions that show ki aap ek team player hain aur job mein interested hain.
All the best
