We’ve already covered various interview tips from what to answer to the dreaded “Why did you leave your last job?” question to how to prove by example that you are a valuable team player. It’s time now to highlight what a job seeker can accomplish by asking intelligent questions in an interview. Asking some important basic questions can give candidates a fairly clear idea about the scope of the contract and what exactly is expected of them.
Here are 3 important questions for candidates to ask in a contract job interview.
- What’s the goal of the project?
When you ask this question, you indirectly let the interviewer know that you are a contribution-oriented person. A good interviewer will present the “bigger picture”, and in doing so, may provide additional information pertaining to your area of interest.
- What are the deliverables for this role?
It’s better to be clear with this all-important aspect of a professional commitment right away. Make sure to highlight your matching experience during the discussion.
- What are the top priorities for this role?
Show that you care about proving yourself and succeeding quickly. Every hiring manager wants self-motivated people on their team.
