While prepping for interviews, sometimes we forget that we, too, need to ask questions. Not only do you want to find out more about the position and employer, but you want to showcase your interest and the research you have done. Asking questions that can be found in the job description or on the website is not recommended. Find an article written about the company or grab a quote from the website and ask them how it relates to that particular position. Get clarification on the role, what kind of training you will be getting, and what will be expected of you 6 months into the job. While you may just be hoping to get hired, you need to show that the reason you are interested is not just because you need a job, but because you have a strong interest in working there. Additionally, if you ask the right questions, it will help you determine if the company is the right fit for you. Check out these 10 questions you should ask.
