You are sitting across the table from someone who has been grilling you for the past two hours on your skills. They are smiling reassuringly at you; your the best candidate that he has seen so far, and he is ready to stop looking.
"That pretty much wraps up the things I wanted to talk to you about," he says "Is there anything you'd like to ask me?"
You smile casually. "I can't think of anything,"
"Good," he says, getting to his feet.
This senerao is played out in the world over and over every day.
What have you learnt about the place you are going to work for?
It is always wise to ask some questions about your future employer, it shows that you want to know how they operate, what the work ethic is like, how the company reacts to the decision making process, how it handles change. Your questions should be well thought out, open ended, and not antagonise the interviewer. The questions should be about gaining an insite to the organisation and not about pointing out their weaknesses.
