...To Find Out How The Interviewers Perceive You
A few times, interviewees have asked us:
"Do you have any reservations about my ability to do this job?"
Two of us now routinely use this when we go for job interviews ourselves.
If you feel brave enough, try it. You might say:
"I'm very interested in this role and believe I could do it well. Do you have any reservations about my ability to do the job?"
It may seem a bit cheeky but it's a reasonable question to ask.
At the end of the day you're a salesperson, selling yourself as the perfect candidate for the job. Asking this question gives the interviewers a chance to clarify any concerns they may have. They can only say "no" if they have no reservations.
Subtly, you are convincing them that you are the right person for the job if they can think of no reason not to hire you!
