9 Questions That Will Impress Your Interviewer

9 Questions That Will Impress Your Interviewer

John Kador, Monster Contributing Writer

The landscape for job seekers today is more treacherous than at any other time in recent memory. In other words, if you want a job today, the hard work starts when you prepare for the interview.

That means not just nailing the questions you are asked, but actually asking the kinds of questions designed to make the interviewer sit up and take notice. It’s no longer enough to be qualified. If you want a job in today’s business environment, you have to shine, and there’s no better way to show your excellence than by asking excellent questions.

Don’t squander the opportunity to shine by asking mundane questions the interviewer has heard before. Your goal is to make a statement in the form of a question. The statement is designed to:

• Highlight your qualifications.
• Demonstrate your confidence.
• Reinforce your commitment.
• Understand the employer’s challenges.
• Make yourself accountable.
• Advance your candidacy.

Questions are the best way to demonstrate that you understand the company’s challenges, emphasize how you can help the company meet them and show your interest in the most unmistakable manner possible — by actually asking for the position.
