Ask the right Questions While Applying for a Job

When you interview for a job, you are also interviewing the company to see if you want to work there. Most interviewers understand this and will ask if you have any questions. Be prepared to ask four or five relevant questions, such as:

*What are the primary duties of this position?

*What do you consider the most important skills or traits for someone in this position?

*How would you describe a typical day in this position?

*What is the standard schedule for this position?

*Why are you looking to fill this position?

*How would you describe your management style?

*What are the short and long-term goals for this position?

*Do you expect significant organizational changes in the near future?

*What are the prospects for advancement in this position?

*What are the next steps in the hiring process?
