Your turn at the microphone.

It is both valid and expected that you will have questions for the person who interviews you. Do your homework! Know about the company---its mission and long term goals. Have three or four specific, generic questions ready to show that you are seriously pursuing this opportunity.

These questions can be used at the end of the interview. Generally, the interviewer asks "Do you have any questions for me?" If you do not hear this, ask if the interviewer has time to answer a few general questions. Know that if you are being sent on to a second interview within the company, it is highly likely these questions will be answered as you progress.

  • Does this position offer an opportunity for career growth?
  • Does your company have a policy on promotions from within?
  • What standards are used for employee evaluation? Yearly?
  • Why do you like working for this organization/firm/company?
  • When will the hiring decision be made?
  • What is the next step in the hiring process?

Topics to avoid during a first interview:

  • SALARY
  • BENEFITS
  • VACATIONS
  • FLEX TIME
  • RAISES
  • YOUR FAMILY RESPONSIBILITIES

Focus on the job and only the job until the potential employer makes an offer. You want them to know that you are interested in the company and what you have to offer them. Timing is everything. These types of specific questions DO have a time and place, but it is not on the first interview.
