An interview is a competitive process. It’s important to prepare before you go into competition or you wont be taken seriously.

What to really Ask your Interviewer
Asking your interviewer thoughtful questions will show that you took the time to prepare and present yourself as a serious contender for the position.
If you’re the kind of person who prepares for an interview, they’ll assume that you’ll be as careful and considerate in a job.
What to ask when you are interviewed for a job

- that you are carefully considering the position and
- have a genuine interest in the opportunity.
