Addressing Concerns

March 2015

Being in the running for a position is at once an exciting and nerve-racking time. You’re passionate about the role and feel like the culture is a good fit. You’re advancing to second or even third round interviews.

This month's InnerView Career Q&A column tackles how to handle the potential concerns that may crop up during your interview process, and how to address them in a diplomatic way.  

Q: What if you have concerns, but don’t want to come across as not being a viable candidate? –Sarah C., Silver Spring, MD

A: Concerns are always difficult to bring up to your hiring manager or recruiter when applying for a job. On one hand, you have these concerns for a reason and need the answers to some questions in order to assess whether or not you’d be willing to accept an offer (if extended). On the other hand, you don’t want to run the risk of asking so many questions that it knocks you out of the running.

The most ideal way to handle this decidedly unsavory situation is to frame your concerns within neutral questions that seek to glean more information about the matter at hand, rather than draw a negative response.
