Regardless of how polished and prepared you may think you are, there’s going to be that point in the interview where you’re asked, “So, do you have any questions for me?” Answer wrong, and you could blow your chances of landing the job. Ask a question the wrong way, and you can come off as being arrogant. Don’t ask any questions at all, and you seem uninterested.
It doesn’t matter what you think you should ask, there are certain questions that shouldn’t come out of your mouth. For example, asking about vacation time and how much you’ll get paid are best left for the next round of interviews or until the person doing the hiring brings it up.
You can also run the risk of asking too many questions. The best thing to do is to periodically gauge the temperature of the interview. Ask mini questions along the way. This will give you an indication as to if you should ask some of the more pertinent questions towards the end of the interview.
