The interview is almost over and then they ask you the last question that you forgot about – Do you have any questions for me?
This is your window of opportunity that you really do not want to miss. Participating in the interview is one factor, but what distinguishes candidates from the others is when they actively participate with the interviewee by asking them questions. Not only does this demonstrate your sincere interest in the position, it also illustrates that you’ve done your homework on the company and the position offered.
Before making a note of these, make sure you are comfortable asking the questions you have chosen otherwise your successful interview could quickly turn to an awkward one.
Ending your interview as confident as you were in the beginning is an essential element to a successful interview and they will remember you when discussing who they want to hire.
