Towards the end of an interview, almost every employer will ask, “Do you have any questions for me?” Job applicants should put just as much thought into asking questions as they do answering questions. Whether you intend it or not, each question you ask has the potential to reflect your knowledge of the company, your interest in the position, and your work ethic.
That’s why it’s important to take the time to come up with thoughtful questions for each interview.
On the flip side, there are some questions that it’s never appropriate to ask your interviewer. Here’s a list of questions never to ask an employer during an interview, along with information on why you shouldn’t ask them.
