You get a better understanding of an organization and they get a better understanding of you from your questions. You want to probe to get a better understanding of the organization’s values and culture.
When you interview them, find out how they’ve made a recent decision. Who was involved in making the decision? How did they each feel about it? What was their boss looking to accomplish?
Interviewing for career change is a little bit different than the way you interviewed in the past. Take your time preparing for a successful interview while changing careers.
