3. How has this position become available?

You may not always like the answer you get, but this is an important question. How well you’d be received at the company, how quickly you integrate, and how easily you’d make your mark are all things that depend, to some degree, on the circumstances that opened this position up for you. Opening a new branch, coping with increased demand for the products or services they offer, having to cover for someone who's on maternity leave, promoting your predecessor - these are all situations that you should be aware of before you're offered the job.
