Top Tips: Interview questions
YOU can make an excellent impression with an employer if you ask thoughtful questions when invited to and whatever the outcome, you can learn from feedback you are given.
Ask questions about the role you are being interviewed for.
For example, what would your targets be, where would you be based, what opportunities are there for professional development, is the job likely to be permanent, etc.
Don't ask about pay, holidays or conditions. You can discuss these after you have been offered the role.

At the end of the interview, check with the interviewer that they haven't any further questions to ask you, and then thank them for taking the time to see you.
Express your pleasure at meeting them and that you hope to meet them again.
If you feel you got on well, you might say you are very much looking forward to joining their team if you are selected.
Remember to check on when they feel they will make a decision and how they will contact you – then if you haven't heard, you can call them to find out.
Sometimes, employers run out of time – a late decision doesn't necessarily mean you haven't got the job.
If you aren't successful, ask the employer for feedback. They may suggest ways in which you could improve your interview techniques for the future.
