The smartest question to ask in an interview

The questions you ask in an interview are as important as the answers you give.

The issue with asking bad or (even worse) no questions is…

It can come across as if you’re:

  • Uninterested;
  • Unpreprepared or;
  • Unengaged.

And more importantly, you lose the opportunity to:

  • Stand out;
  • Clarify any grey areas and;
  • Fully determine if the role is right for you.

So, if you have an interview, ask questions, especially this next one.

The smartest question to ask:

“I want to ensure I align myself with what success looks like here.

What are the top three traits your best performers display?”

Why is this question so good?

It shows you’re motivated and driven to be one of the best.


Plus, it tells you how you’ll be evaluated and what you’ll have to strive for.


But bottom line. 

If you have an interview.

Prepare questions.
