What questions should I ask in an interview?

Coming to an interview with a prepared list of questions is a good method of showing your potential employer that beyond simply looking for work; you’ve also done your homework on the company and have an interest in what you can offer them. Here are a couple of examples of questions you should ask in your job interview:

  • "What's my opportunity for advancement?" This tells your employer that you’re interested in long term employment, and sets you apart from other job seekers who may not be in it for the long haul.
  • "What are your performance expectations of me?" Asking this question is another way of letting your prospective boss know that you intend to perform well, and that you are willing to ask the necessary questions to ensure that you do.
