favorite interview question - what are some quick wins you’d like to see someone accomplish in the first 3 mos in this role? I like it bc it gives them a chance to tell you what they find most important in the role and sets you up for some initial success.

Ask what their expectations are of you at this new title. Sometimes titles mean different things at different places, especially if you are functioning above your level at your current place.
