    Who is your company’s competition?

    If you’ve done your research prior to the interview, you shouldn’t have to ask this question. Hiring managers expect you to have a good idea of how their company is positioned before you enter the interview.

You’re sitting in an interview, and the hiring manager is about to wrap everything up. Just when you think you’re free to leave, the hiring manager asks, "Do you have any questions for me?" You’re speechless. In an effort to think on your feet, you blurt out, “How much does this position pay?” Immediately, you realize this probably wasn’t the best question to ask once you see the expression on the hiring manager’s face. Job seekers make two mistakes during the interview process: They don’t have questions prepared for the interviewer, and they ask the wrong questions.

Asking the wrong question during an interview can definitely cost you a job offer. By avoiding these questions and doing your research, you’ll be better prepared with thoughtful questions to ask at the conclusion of a job interview.
