Questions to Ask Interviewers
One of the last parts of the interview will allow you to ask some questions of the interviewer. This is your opportunity to determine if the position and company are the right fit for you.
Don’t ever say, "I don’t have any questions." This may be interpreted as disinterest in the job.
Prepare questions ahead of time and write them down. Bring your questions to the interview.
