Questions You Should Ask During an Interview - Interview Tips - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Asking questions can be a great tool during the interview if you ask appropriate questions. One of the complaints that I hear frequenty from hiring managers is that people who are going on interviews are not asking good questions. So make sure you have some lined up in your pocket so you can pull them out and dazzle that employer. Use your questions to uncover the hidden job. Use those questions to find out why the position is open, and ask things like: "what would I have to do in the first three months to really dazzle you?" Ask questions like: "what is keeping you up at night?" If you can find out what is keeping that person who is making the hiring decision up at night, and then you can tie that to your ability to solve the problem that is worrying them, you are going to be a great fit candidate for that position and definitely quickly rise to be one of their forerunners.
