As doubtful as this sounds, a job interview is a two way process. As well as the interviewer finding out more about you, it is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the company you may be working for. This is why when the interviewer asks the obligatory ‘do you have any questions?’ it is a good idea to take him/her up on the offer, not only as it is a final chance for you to prove yourself, but it also gives you the opportunity to find out more about the company and the recruitment process.

Reed has compiled a list of potential questions for you to consider asking when the moment arises.

• Can you tell me more about the company?
• Is this post a new or existing one?
• How many other people are there in the team?
• What would my day-to-day responsibilities be?
• What are the promotion prospects?
• Do you run any training schemes?
• What are the company’s plans for the future?
• How would you describe the ideal candidate?
• When can I expect to hear from you?

Remember that this isn’t an exhaustive list, and not all questions will be relevant to every interview, but they are good points to keep in mind.
