Wrapping up interviews can be difficult and you can spend hours pondering over the right questions to ask at the end.
Well, we have come across the best question ever to end your interview on a high! So when you are next asked “Do you have any questions?” simply answer with …..
“Actually yeah, I was wondering what your best moment so far at [Company Name] was?”
This simple ask, cleverly masked as innocent curiosity, can give you many important insights—on your interviewer’s values, the company, and how well you might fit in with a position there. Think about it: There’s no higher note to end on than with your interviewer’s fondest memory of the company, a feeling that can now be subconsciously associated with your prospects as a future employee.
And aside from being an emotional plus for you, it’ll also give you an idea of what your future co-workers might value, and the kind of culture that company cultivates for its team members. If your interviewer struggles to come up with a meaningful memory, that’s a helpful red flag for you to keep in mind if you end up with an offer.
So, the next time you’re struggling for something to say in those awkward few moments before the door closes with you on the other side, give this question a shot. Odds are, it can only help.
