It’s important to know how to interview a candidate. However, it’s equally as important to have unique interview questions to ask potential employers. 

You see, most recruiters are looking for “the diamond in the rough.”

So, when you’re on the hunt for a new job, you want to make sure you stand out — in the best way possible. 

One of the ways to do so is to ask quality questions. 

Examples of Unique Interview Questions for Potential Employers

1Considering what you know, would you say I’m a good culture fit?

It’s critical to ask if you’d be a good culture fit, simply because it shows the employer that you’re serious about the job. In addition, it conveys that you can potentially see yourself working here. 

In today’s world, collaboration is the new currency.

Therefore, you want to make sure you’re walking into an organization that values your input and collaborates nicely. 

2What are the day-to-day expectations for this role?

You wouldn’t sign a document without reading the fine print first, right? After all, you want to make sure you’re 100% on board with what you’re signing up for. 

Same goes for a job. 

It’s necessary to understand the expectations for the position. In doing so, you can better gauge whether or not you’re under, over, or perfectly qualified.

3How will the company measure my performance and impact?

At Cardone Ventures, I don’t pay people for their time, I pay them for their results. 

If you’re also intentional about your efforts, then you need to show this potential employer that you will be holding yourself accountable for your impact. 

4What opportunities are there to grow in this position?

Asking this question will let them know that you’re not just here for a job — you’re here for a career. 

Great business owners are looking for people who are willing to take the lead — team members who will exemplify their brand and help move the business forward.

By asking about growth opportunities, you’re already putting yourself in the position of a leader. 

5Based on the skills I will learn in this role, who will I become?

Finally, it’s no secret that with every job, we learn new skills. And with each new skill, we “level up.”

You want to make sure the company will value your professional goals, continued education, and time.

  1. Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all of us you actually know what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Kindly also visit my web site =). We could have a link exchange agreement between us!

  2. I’m not sure why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  3. Always delivering amazing content! These questions would have been a game changer on my last job search. These are especially important for college grads getting into their “dream job”. I think it’s important to interview the employer, not just the prospect employee.
