Professional development is important to me. How do you ask about development without looking as though you’re already thinking about the next role?
Would you recommend asking those types of very insightful questions on culture, values, etc. even on a first round/introductory interview?
Is it okay to ask when to expect to hear from them? Also, if you haven’t heard back, when is it reasonable to reach out to keep yourself top of mind as a candidate?
If you’re lacking in experience (but have a willingness to learn!) what is the best way to get this across professionally?
What if the position you are interviewing for is internal (I know the culture and have been at this institution for over 20 years)...what insightful questions do you recommend? Especially if I have also been on the "other side" ie. the interviewer?
I was wondering if there are any resources you recommend or know of, to build active listening skills?
Some of your sample questions demonstrate confidence and assertiveness. Can you give examples of questions that would make you seem too confrontational or aggressive? How would you define the boundary between positive and negative assertiveness in an interview?
How and to whom should you direct the salary question to, especially given these recessionary times?
I'm a highschool student applying to college this year. Since a lot of interviewers are alumni from years past, do you have any different suggestions for how to approach these interviews where responses may be out of date?
Thoughts on whether its better for you or the interviewer to do more talking?
How were you able to bounce back from the interviewer saying "you need to do better than that" or if you get a negative response on a question or response you made? How can you win back the room after that? what was the overall outcome?
Any hot tips or rules of thumb for emailed “interview” questions? I was asked to respond to 4 questions from the CEO with no guidance. I couldn’t decide whether a detailed response would be seen as overly verbose.
If you possess creative insights or realistic solutions to an organization's most pressing challenges, how much information should you give them during the interview?
Can you ask interviewers about their career path and what led them to their current role?
Is it ok to take notes during an interview?
I have experienced back-to-back, 30-minute virtual interviews. The post-interview feedback was that I asked too many questions which didn't give the interviewers a chance to get to know me. What do you advise?
What about post-interview protocol? I would love handwritten thank you notes, but wonder how that would work in this current "remote work" environment? Is a 'thank you' email acceptable?
^^ piggyback to that, it’s often only the HR person who makes the contact to set up the interview. Is thanking HR helpful, and does looking up your interviewer’s info (if available) come across as desperate/over-the-top?
What are some ways that you can weave your strengths into your responses without sounding conceited or boastful?
@Kaitlyn - exactly! Great add-on!
Speaking of body language - any particular advice for in-person interviewing while wearing a mask?
Is it okay to ask the same question to multiple people in the interview process?
