@lydiahuang Thanks for sharing! What are some examples of insightful questions from your perspective?

That's a great question! I would suggest diving into the role and project-related questions. (for example, who will you work closely on a certain project? What's the goal for this new project? what challenges will you face in this role?) That shows that you have a high interest in the position AND you can use those questions to share how your skills can help the team and company grow.

Thank you! For #5 are you talking abut solutions that the company is facing?For #7 at one point should one create small talk at the start or even throughout? In which case I'd go a step further and say let your personality come out :-)

Great questions!For #5, you can talk about the problems that you identify on the company's public presense. For example, if you are applying for a social media role in a company, and you notice the low engagement on their social media post, then you can bring up your observation, and provide some solutions to solve that problem. For #7, small talk can happen at the start or throughout. The key is to create a two-way conversation between you and the interviewer. That's how people can remember you!

Agreed on both! On #7 - exactly it's about showing your personality!
