At the end of most job interviews you are asked if you have any question for the interviewer or the company. This is a golden opportunity to position yourself as the best candidate and of course also find out if this is the company where you want to work.
You simply ask the employer to voice their concerns and by being able to respond, you can avoid any misunderstandings. Make sure that you give them time to properly voice their concern and then attempt to clarify or respond.
It takes some courage to ask some of these interview questions, but the return is much greater than other types of questions. When asked in an open and inviting way, they can get you closer to getting that dream job.
