Inquiries about your salary or the number of days off during the first interview is strictly prohibited. Of course it’s important to stir these things up, but don’t do that until the second or third round. The first meeting is to see if there is a match between you, the vacancy and the company. So it is best to ask one of the following questions:
1. Why do you like working here on your own?
This way you show that you are interested in the company’s culture and the positive aspects of the company. A nice bonus is that this somewhat personal question also instantly creates an association with the recruiter.
2. What would my typical work day look like?
Not only does this question prove that you are really interested in the job, but the answer will also help you get a better idea of the job so you can assess whether it is really a good fit for you.
3. What are the biggest challenges in my position?
Checking this also helps you build a correct picture of the job. It also shows that you like being prepared and ready to take on the challenges that come your way, which is an excellent quality.
