Tip 3 – Prepare smart questions:

Interviews are a two-way street, good  potential employers expect you to ask questions, they want to know that you’re thinking seriously about what it would be like to work there. Here are some questions you may want to consider asking your interviewers:

“Can you explain some of the day-to-day responsibilities for this job?”

“How would you describe the characteristics of someone who would succeed in this role?”

“If I were in this position, how would my performance be measured? How often?”

“What departments does this team work with regularly? How do these departments typically collaborate? What does that process look like?”

“What are the challenges you’re currently facing in your role?”
