BPP University Interview Questions
When it comes to a job interview, declining the opportunity to ask questions can be something of a risk and can make you appear passive or uninterested to some interviewers.
If done subtly, there is no harm in using your questions to reinforce your merits as a candidate. There’s a good chance some of the questions you plan on asking will have already been answered, so it’s a good idea to prepare a bank or around five or six questions to select from when needed.
Here is a selection of some things you could ask:
1. What do you think distinguishes this company from its competitors?
Opening with this question shows you are looking at the bigger picture and the reputation and success of the organisation are important to you.
2. How has the company changed since you started worked here?
This demonstrates an interest in the company’s achievements and that you care about where it’s headed.
3. How would you describe the company culture and management style?
You are someone who takes management seriously and are keen to fit with the company culture by adapting your working style to those around you.
4. Is this a new position? If not, what did the previous employee go on to do?
Show off your ambition; you’re looking to build a career within the organisation and want to add value.
5. Where does the job fit into the team structure?
You might have already mentioned that you are a ‘team player’; even so there’s no harm in reinforcing this.
6. What would you say are the three most important skills needed to excel in this position?
This question can help to remind your interviewer that you possess many of the skills needed for the job and that you are a strong candidate.
