Top 5 Questions to Ask Your Next IT Employer

By . December 20, 2018
Most people spend a lot of time preparing all the right answers before an interview, but it is just as important to make sure that you are asking all the right questions. Asking a potential employer a few intelligent questions will show that you have initiative and have invested time in researching, not just in the role, but the company too.

Here are our top five questions to ask your next IT employer.

1)     What would my responsibilities be?

Although you will probably already have a description of the job role you are applying for, it is good to hear from your interviewer a brief description of exactly what your responsibilities would be. Try asking them to take you through an average day in the role, so you can get a flavour of the kind of things you would be doing if you were hired.

 2)     What would my personal development plan be?

Any employer will appreciate you thinking about how you can develop your career within the company. It shows that you are thinking about staying with them long term and have the ambition and forward thinking needed to progress and add value to their organization.

 3)     Is this a new position or am I replacing someone?

It is always good to know if you are filling someone else’s shoes or coming into a newly created role. This will help you understand how you will fit into the existing team and also give you an indication of how well the company is doing, as new business may have led to the creation of a new role.

 4)     Can you describe the culture of this workplace?

Every workplace has its own culture and traditions. While some businesses like to maintain a very formal and corporate environment, others may prefer a setting that is slightly more relaxed. Finding a work environment that will suit you is extremely important so it is always helpful to find out as much as you can before you accept a new role.

 5)     What are the future goals of this company and how can I play a part?


Finally, as important as it is to show that you are thinking about your own future, you are sure to impress if you are also seen to be thinking about the future of your employer. Ask them what the five-year goals of the company are and find out how you can play a part in achieving them.
