“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.” Voltaire

Asking a genuine question allows you to convey something you haven’t already brought up. For example: “According to your quarterly report, your revenues grew by 20%. What was that attributed to?

You bring value to yourself through the questions you ask — but only if they are good questions. The best questions provide insight for all parties concerned.

Examples of good closing interview questions to create a positive lasting impression:

  1. What are the top priorities in your business at the moment?
  2. What challenges do you envisage in making this happen?
  3. If we were to work together on this, what are the top two or three outcomes you would like to see?
