Questions to Avoid Asking in an Interview

As your job interview comes to a close, one of the final questions you may be asked is, “What can I answer for you?” Your interviewer will expect for you to have some inquiries.

You aren’t simply trying to get this job—you are also interviewing the employer to assess whether this company and the position are a good fit for you.

However, there are some questions that you should avoid asking since they won’t present you in a positive light.

Here is a list:

  1. What does this company do? (Do your research ahead of time!)
  2. If I get the job, when can I take time off for vacation? (Wait until you get the offer to mention prior commitments.)
  3. Can I change my schedule if I get the job? (If you need to figure out the logistics of getting to work, don’t mention it now.)
  4. Did I get the job? (Don’t be impatient. They’ll let you know.)
