Got your list of interview questions to ask?
The worst thing you can do while interviewing for a new role, is skip the part where you turn the tables, and interview your potential employer.
Yes, you need to make a great impression so you can get the offer. But you also need to know if this new role will be a fit for the standards you’ve set for your next role.
Knowing the right interview questions to ask can be daunting. Don’t try to think of these questions on the spot. The best way to prepare for an interview is to come prepared with great questions. I went ahead and did the work for you. Here are some questions to help you decide if a new role is right for you (and impress your interviewer to boot).

Your Expectations Matter
Keep in mind your potential employer is as exhausted from searching for a candidate as you are from job searching. They likely wants to hire you. All you have to do is remove their reservations about hiring you in the first place. Once you’ve done that though, it’s your turn to ensure the work environment, and pay, match your expectations.
