Interview Tip #3
When you are face-to-face with the hiring manager, you might want to ask:
Can You Show Me Examples Of Projects I’d Be Working On?
Why a hiring manager wants to hear this: They want to know you’re serious about wanting the job and excited to add value to the company from the very start.
It shows initiative.
If you’re already thinking about working on projects this early in the hiring process, that puts you way ahead of the other candidates who are just trying not to bomb the interview.
What their answer will tell you: You’ll get a sense of what your average project will look like. You’ll also be able to get a better idea if this is the type of work you want to do.
Could you develop your skills working on these projects?
Is this work that will challenge you to grow as a professional?
If the hiring manager stumbles trying to answer this question, they might not have been completely transparent about what the position actually entails.
