The Questions You Should Be Asking in a Job Interview
When it comes to most standard interviews, the interviewer will typically wrap up the session with the closing question, “Do you have any final questions about the job?” The fact is, it’s imperative to be prepared! Asking good questions to conclude your job interview shows that you are interested, did your homework, and can help you leave a final and lasting impression. The answers to those questions should also help you decide whether or not you want to work for the employer.
