While it is important to answer the questions asked by your interviewer in as charming a manner as you can try, it would also help if you had a list of questions you would like to ask your prospective employers.
Questions on salary and how it is broken down, the amenities provided by the company, the working hours etc. are very important and you need to know all this before you take up the job. It will also help you to create a mental checklist of pros and cons of each company you interview. Later you can sit down and evaluate carefully and then choose the company that gives you the best options. Some of the questions that you should ask are:
- Compensation provided by the company and your likely expenses
- The earnings of a first time associate in the company
- Working hours in the company
- Training programs and continuing education options
- Mentor programs available and whether you should take it up
- Amenities and benefits provided by the company
- How accessible the management of the company is and how do the deal with employee grievances
Be polite during and after the interview
During the interview, answer all questions directed to you in a clear, concise, and polite manner. Stress your skill and knowledge base but do not come across as over confident in any way. Even if there are issues you do not agree with such as your salary compensation or your working hours, be polite and place your points across. Also, remember to send a thank-you note after the interview is over if you harbor any intentions or hopes of getting into the company.
