9. ASKING QUESTIONS IN A JOB INTERVIEW

In any interview, you are expected to ask questions of the interviewer.

An interview is not just a place where they try to find out if you are suited to the job, but also for you to find out if the job suits you.

The only way to do that is to ask sensible questions - don't just sit there as if you know everything!
