Interview Tip #27

When you are interviewing, make it point to ask the hiring team, “How will I measure my performance in this role?”

By phrasing the question this way, you’re taking full ownership of your work, and the employer will notice that. You are sending the message that you will be accountable for your actions.

Ask them to get specific about success.

Plus, if they can’t explain how you’ll be able to measure your performance to make sure you’re having an impact, that’s a huge red flag. This question will help you weed out the positions where there’s little opportunity to develop your skills, receive promotions, and earn raises.
