Are you proactive enough during a job interview? Do you ask your own questions — and not just answer the ones that are asked of you?
Consider this advice from Margaret Heffernan of CBS MarketWatch: “Toward the end of a job interview, there’s always a moment when you’re asked if you have any questions. It’s tricky. You don’t want to sound too pugnacious (will they think I’m too aggressive?), but neither do you want to pass on the opportunity (will they think I don’t have a mind of my own?) I’ve rarely heard anyone use this moment to the fullest, so here are some suggested questions that will leave a strong impression while also prying loose some valuable information about your prospective employer.”
