Job Interview Questions to Ask at Second Interview
It is important for a job applicant to remember that asking questions can be just as impressive to an interviewer as answering questions in some cases. In fact, asking questions can be extremely helpful to an applicant during an initial interview and even more helpful to an applicant during a second interview. This is because a job applicant has to convince the interviewer that he or she is actually interested in the position and there is no better way for an individual to look interested than to ask the interviewer about some of the things that he or she mentioned in the first interview. However, there may be some situations in which a job applicant is simply unable to gather (or unable to remember) the information that he or she needs to tailor all of his or her questions. As a result, it may be helpful for you to know some of the generic job interview questions that you can ask at a second interview.
The first question that you might ask at a second interview is "Would it be possible for me to get a copy of the employee handbook?" This question will show the interviewer that you are interested in learning more about the company's policies and, if the interviewer has a copy of the employee handbook, will allow you to obtain a resource that you can use to gather more information about the company for future interviews. The second job interview question to ask at a second interview is "How did this position become available?" This question will allow you to gather information about the position, the way that the position fits into the company, and the reasons that an individual might have left the position in the past. This information can be very useful because there's always a chance that the position is not as good as you thought it would be. A third and final example of a job interview question to ask at a second interview is "When do you expect to make a hiring decision for this position?" This question will not only allow you to gather information about the hiring process, but will also help you to show the interviewer that you are really interested in the position.
