At some point during a job interview, you will be asked if you have any questions. Your answer should always be, “Yes”. Good interview questions you should ask include queries about your potential job position or about your prospective company.

The most important tip for preparing for a job interview is to research the company. When you show you’ve taken the time to research a company, you demonstrate several desirable qualities every employer is looking for. It proves you are willing to invest personal time learning about them, which shows initiative and a drive to make informed decisions. Here’s a quick guide to prepare for your interview questions:

  • Avoid yes or no questions.
  • Never ask about salary.
  • Behavioral questions about the future of the company’s stock growth or expansion are always good. Additionally, ask about trends in the industry.
  • Don’t ask questions that could have been answered if you had taken the time to check out the company’s website.
  • Ask questions related to the company’s mission statement.
