During the job interview, employers usually expect applicants to ask a few questions about the company or the job. If you don’t have any questions, the interviewer may assume that either you aren’t interested in the job or you haven’t learned enough about the company to know what to ask. Watch the video to discover some good questions to ask.

The questions you ask become part of the overall impression you make during the interview. Choose your questions carefully to show that you are concerned about the employer’s needs as well as your own.
The following questions are good choices:
• Are there opportunities to advance within the company?
• How would I be trained for this job?
• What are the most important skills I would need to do the job?
• What are the specific duties for this job?
• How would my work be evaluated?
• What are the hours for the job?
As you think about starting a job, you may be concerned about the health benefits the company offers or how soon you will start earning sick leave or vacation days. Although these are important things to find out, they are not appropriate questions for the initial job interview. Save these questions for your second interview with the company or until you’ve been offered a job. On the other hand, if you do have definite schedule requirements, like you absolutely cannot work on Wednesdays, you should tell the employer during the interview process. You don’t want to surprise an employer with this kind of information after he or she offers you the job.
