5 insightful questions a candidate could ask the recruiter

The interview is an indispensable part of any recruitment process. In fact, it is probably the most important, which produces a great state of nerves in the candidates. After all, this is the moment when they should show off their skills if they want to get the job. But, likewise, it is also synonymous with stress for recruiters since they must be right in their choice. This task, almost always, is not easy considering that hundreds of other candidates also want the job.

Generally, in these job interviews, the recruiter is the one who asks the candidate. However, this may also be the time to ask the interviewer questions. Do not be afraid to ask them because, in general, they feel that the applicant has a proactive and appropriate attitude. These are the 5 top questions:

1. Why do you like working in this company?

The recruiter already works in the company, so you must have reasons to feel at ease about this question. Without a doubt, this is a very insightful question capable of putting you in a bind but from which you can obtain valuable information.

2. Do you see yourself working here in a few years?

This is the ideal question to know the course that the company follows, its viability over time and how comfortable its employees are in it. After all, everyone is looking for and needs stability over time.

3. What ambitious goals does the company pursue this year?

It is always good to know in advance the aspirations that the company has in the short, medium and long term. In this way, the candidate can get a pretty close idea of ​​the reality of what his role will be in the company and take advantage to show off how he can help achieve the objectives.

4. Do new employees usually come from other departments or from open selection processes?

In general, companies that trust their workers and encourage them to be those who recommend people around them often enjoy a healthier environment. On the other hand, those that make open selection processes, tend to promote more competitiveness.

5. If you hire me, what will you expect from me in the first 100 days of work?

No question is better than this once the contract is signed and the job is granted. On the one hand, this shows predisposition, desire to do well, and interest. In the same way, it also serves to know what is expected from the candidate and what he will be facing in the workplace.
