The questions you ask a recruiter are important


When a recruiter pitches you a role, they usually ask you for your reaction. “What are your initial thoughts?”


You have an opportunity here. Half the people I speak with will say whether or not they’re interested and describe their high-level fit. The other half ask questions.


The questions you ask are extremely revealing.


Is this person thinking about the tech side? The business? The customer? The culture?


I can tell by the questions you ask if you’ve done this before, how you went about it, what you’re looking out for, and your level of seniority.


You have a window of opportunity to reveal a lot about yourself.


Then when you get the answer to your question, you have another opportunity in how you react.


Use it to your advantage.
