Interview Tip: Come With Questions

SCENE: We open in a meeting room, just as an interview is winding down.
INTERVIEWER 1
Well, Mr. Smith, those are all the questions we have for you today. We really
appreciate your time. Do you have any questions for us before we wrap up?
Camera pans to INTERVIEWEE.
MR. SMITH

Crickets chirp.
MR. SMITH

Wolves howl in the distance.
MR. SMITH

Tumbleweed blows through the office.
MR. SMITH
Uhh, I don’t think so.
AND CUT!
Please don’t be Mr. Smith. Even if you spent zero time researching the company before you showed up for the interview (shame on you), you should at least be a little curious about what your day-to-day job is going to be like. This is the best (and possibly only) time for you to get a feel for how the company works. You could easily ask the interviewers what they do on a daily basis, or perhaps ask about what languages the company uses in the software that they write. Nothing says, “I don’t care about whether or not I get a job here,” better than not asking a single question of the interviewers.
