Ask Insightful Questions

Toward the end of most job interviews, the interviewer will give you the opportunity to ask questions. You must ask at least one question; to do otherwise often signals the interviewer that you don’t really have any interest in the job or the company. On the other hand, do not ask questions where the answer is obvious or readily available — or when the topic has already been thoroughly discussed in the interview. And never ask about salary and benefit issues until those subjects are raised by the employer. The best questions to ask should come directly from your research of the employer


This approach accomplishes four main purposes:

• To discover specific needs of the employer that you can address and meet.

• To establish an impression of you as extremely interested in the position and truly curious about the company and the opportunities available.

• To learn about the corporate culture and the company as a whole, including company values, ethics, and the way personnel are managed.

• To uncover and discuss any concerns the employer has about your candidacy.
