By asking about the most enjoyable aspects of a role, a job interviewer learns that the job applicant is interested in knowing about and preparing for the potential challenges presented in the position. Enquiring about training opportunities demonstrates that a job applicant is looking forward to enhancing his skills and utilizing them to benefit the company.

A job seeker demonstrates interest in knowing how contributing his skills may affect the company by asking the question, "How does this role relate to the overall structure of the organization?". Asking the question “Is there an opportunity for a promotion?” indicates that the job applicant desires to make progress over time.

Questions asked during a job interview help to create dialogue between an interviewer and an interviewee.
