    • Can you discuss a project or task that really motivated and excited you in your previous position?
  1. Culture Fit:
    • How would you describe your ideal work environment?
    • Can you give an example of a time when you successfully contributed to a team or company culture?
  1. Expectations:
    • What are your career goals, and how does this position align with them?
