When it comes to a candidate asking question during an interview, almost the advice I see focuses on two things:
1. Making sure candidates ask at least one question.
2. Maybe providing some sample questions to ask.
Both of these are valid.
But what if they miss the far more powerful point:
WHEN to ask questions.
My advice to candidates is the same advice I give to interviewers: treat the interview like a conversation.
This means having a back and forth, with each person asking questions they think of based on what's being said.
This style eliminates the dreaded final interview question referred to here, while allowing the company and you, the candidate, decide if you're right for each other.
It's far more natural.
And it works.
Try it and let me know what happens.
