This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Ohio U chapter.

When preparing for an interview, it’s always important to have a list of questions to ask your potential future employer. When preparing these questions, it’s also a good idea to think about who exactly you’ll be talking to so you can adjust the questions accordingly whether it’s a recruiter, HR manager, or a potential supervisor.

2. What is the most challenging part of the job?

3. What is the organization or structure of the department that I would be working in?

4. What would an average day or week look like in this position?
