Full Answer

Asking questions during an interview shows that a candidate wants to learn more about the company, according to Forbes. Interviewees should not ask questions just to ask, but they should ask questions that offer a good look into the company and the job for which they are applying.

Specific questions include, "Can you walk me through a typical work day?" or, "What are your expectations for this job role?" Ask questions specific to the interview, such as "How soon are you looking to fill this role?" and, "When can applicants expect to hear from you or another company representative?" Asking these questions shows interest and allows a candidate to be clear on the hiring timeline.

Other important questions include, "What is the company's vision for the next five years?" and, "How does the company expect to realize this vision?" Before the interview, interviewees need to visit the company's website to become familiar with its motto, mission statement, history and other details to avoid asking for information that is public knowledge.
