Internship Interview Questions

Internships are a perfect way for many recruiting managers to assess new employees. Internships are intended to be training experiences first and foremost, which means you should be personally involved in curating the questions and activities aimed at finding the best applicants who might also prove to be your potential employees in the near future.

Here’s your cheat sheet towards developing the perfect internship interview questions:

  • Why are you interested in this internship?

  • What’s your perspective of an ideal team at work?
  • Tell us of a time when you took the initiative or undertook a leadership role.
  • Tell us about a project or assignment that you worked on from start to finish—what went well and what you would have done differently?
