When interviewing, many candidates don't realize that the questions they ask are just as important as how they present themselves and the answers they give. Failing to ask questions shows a lack of genuine interest in the job. Asking foolish questions indicates the candidate didn't do enough research prior to the interview. Making either mistake can cost a candidate the job offer.
Heather Krasna, author of 'Jobs That Matter: Find a Stable, Fulfilling Career in Public Service,' advises job seekers to prepare a list of questions before the interview, much like they'd create a list of talking points that address the value they offer the employer.
