The last question to ask before leaving the interview hall
Remember being in an interview and pouring your heart out for almost half an hour and at the end of the interview, the interviewer asks 'any last questions' and all you want to do is get out of that room?
Well, though it may be a formality question and a polite way of saying that the interview is over instead of chugging you out.
But did you know that asking the right question at this time can actually give you an edge over others and also making a positive impact on the selectors before leaving the hall.
Marshall Darr points out in an article in themuse.com, that this final remark is actually a moment to 'add value to the conversation'
The key is playing the right cards, the interviewers would have been asking questions to many candidates and you would have answered several questions.
So what is that question that would be appropriate in that situation?
'Actually yeah, I was wondering what your best moment so far at [Company Name] was?'Marshall Darr says.
By asking this question you will kindle the interviewer's fondest memory of the company and which in turn will give you an insight of what you can expect from the company.
This will also give you an idea of what to expect from your company and your co workers. It will also reveal the culture of the company and how it treats its employees.
Above all it will give you a clearer picture whether to take up the job, if selected.
If your interviewer is sharing a meaningful memory which you like and if it is the environment you are looking to work, you can take up the job, but on the contrary if the interviewer has to think or share something that is not that great, then you may think before saying yes after getting the offer.
So, the next time, before leaving the interview hall, ensure that you give this question a shot and it will definitely come in more than handy.
