Interview Tip #28

Are you asking your hiring managers and future peers, “What are the biggest challenges for the person who joins your team?”

When they talk to you about their biggest challenges, you’ll know exactly what stories to tell about how you have tackled (and conquered) similar challenges.

You will show them that you are a great fit for this job. You’ll show them that you are the missing part of the team!

This question is an important indicator of the work that needs to be done and how your work will be evaluated, leading to explanations of the appraisal progress, any expected targets, and the challenges this role faces.

It will give you a head start and means you will have clear KPIs and understand any potential issues you could encounter on the job.
