Interview Tip #2
No one wants to stand still. No one wants a stagnant career.
While you prepare for your interview, be prepared to ask your interviewer “How do you see this role changing over time?”
Why a hiring manager wants to hear this: You’re seeing if there is potential to stay at the company long term, either in the job you applied for or in a different position if you get promoted. They want to know you hope to stay at the company for longer than one or two years because it costs employers a lot of money to hire new employees. They might get the impression that you’ll be a loyal employee.
What their answer will tell you: It’ll tell you whether you’ll be expected to do tasks you weren’t originally hired for or not. If the hiring manager says the main responsibilities for the position will change, you can ask them to elaborate.
Do the changes align with your career goals? Is that how you want to grow in the company, in your career? If not, you probably won’t see any long-term career potential there, and it might be best if you look for a job elsewhere.
