Are You Asking The Right Questions During Job Interviews?

So, you have landed those coveted job interviews and have begun to practice and perfect your interview skills. Now what? Well, in addition to fine-tuning your interview skills, you may also want to consider making a list of appropriate questions to ask your interviewers when the opportunity presents.  It is very important to be prepared so that you appear engaged when it is your turn to ask questions. Before compiling your list, it is recommended that you research company websites to ensure you are not asking questions you could easily locate answers to online.  Hiring managers expect you to ask relevant questions that demonstrate insight and proper preparation.
