Congratulations! You got the interview! Now what? A common misconception regarding interviews is that you are the only one being interviewed. The job needs to be a fit for you just as much as the opposite is true. One of the biggest mistakes you can make on an interview is staying silent when the hiring manager asks, “do you have any questions for me?”. Although it is best to do your own research and ask questions specific to the company and the role you are interviewing for, The Daily Muse Editor posted an article, “51 Interview Questions You Should be Asking,” that can serve as a great starting point if you need some ideas to get you started. Below are just a few listed in the article…
