When we did a job interviews, often at the end of the session we are asked "Anything you want to ask?". This is actually an opportunity for us to interview our potential leads/peers back. This is what I usually ask my next leads/peers during product design role interviews
🧵 6 questions that can help us learn about our potential leads/peers 👇🏻
This is my favorite question because it can get a variety of answers. The intention of this question is to know what value that our next leads/peers hold. What they considers good and bad. Plus it's interesting to hear their answers.
There is one person said "What good design means for me? Hmmm, I can say Apple is a bad design.” Then she explained why according to her Apple is a bad design. Very interesting and bold.
The intention of this question is to know the product development process or design process that the company usually go through. Can be used to prepare for adaptation when accepted, or even become something that we can improve when we join
This is specific to leads. The intention is to know how they see the failures made by their subordinate. Can them be able to provide a sense of security for their subordinate to learn?
This is specific for peers. The intention was to see their experience adapting when they are joined their company. So we can also be aware of what we have to prepare
This is specific for leads lg. The intention is to see how far the leads care about the goals of their subordinate. Because I think a supportive lead is a lead who cares about their subordinate's goals and can help them to achieve it
This is for leads. Even though it's been written in the JD, usually when asked this, their answers more specifically. Can be used to align expectations and understand the values held by the leads again
At least those are 6 questions that I often throw when asked by interviewers. Usually, from these 6 questions, you can actually talk a lot and know a lot about our prospective team. What's yours?
