One of the best things you can do in a job interview is to...
Ask good questions...
You want to ask questions that will leave the employers with a positive impression of you.
You don't want to ask questions, just to ask questions because that's not a strategy.
And that kind of nonsense will negatively affect your candidacy and will lave you wondering why you never heard back from them.
We've all been on an interview we thought went well, but never heard back, right? Even me. It happens to the best of us.
Usually it's because of a little mistake we made that we didn't realize.
I can't stress this point enough - During the first and second round of interviews -- avoid asking your interviewer the ME questions.
- Do you allow your employees to work from home?
- Do you pay for mileage?
- Will you pay for my home Internet?
- Will you pay for my training?
- Will I be able to get my paycheck directly deposited?
- How much vacation will I get the first year?
- I won't have to work weekends, will I?
- I know tatoos are commonnplace these days, but what about body piercing, is there a threshold that is considered appropriate?
You may not realize it, but when you ask these questions you are putting yourself in the class with the deadbeat employee. The deadbeat employee wants the company to bend over backwards for them. They want the company to pay for everything. They are whiners and complainers and are ungrateful for the job they have.
When you ask employers these questions they immediately classify you with deadbeat employees they already have - and I'm pretty sure they don't want anymore.
Chances are -- you're interviewing for the deadbeat's job.
Unless the answer to any of the above questions is vitally important to your acceptance of this job then I would strongly advise against asking these questions
