Don’t allow the interviewer ask all the questions. Here are a few questions to consider asking in your next interview:
What would a typical day in this job be like? If you can’t sit at a desk for very long and this job will require you to sit nearly all day, then it may not be for you. If you prefer to work with people and this position is simply data entry, you may want to consider looking.
What Benefits are you offering? This is a very important question as benefits can be worth a significant amount that is not reflected in a salary or hourly figure. Health insurance is worth hundreds of dollars a month. Tuition reimbursement is also a perk many companies offer so you’ll be able to continue your education through online schools or other means.
How much does the job pay? Don’t be afraid to ask this question! Your time and talents are worth something and the figure needs to be acceptable to both you and the employer. Don’t undersell yourself by settling for a wage that is below industry standard. If you’ve worked hard to become educated and qualified for the position, ask for what you think you’re worth.
Remember that when you ask these questions you need to be assertive but not arrogant.
