Many people in job interviews ignore the importance of asking questions and assume that their sole role during the meeting is to answer questions. In reality, however, most interviewers will agree that there's as much (if not more) information in the questions the candidate asks - or doesn't.
This book is suitable for new graduates on their first job hunt as well as veteran job seekers. It can help the veterans by aiding them focus on the areas they want to explore before their interview and the impression they want to leave the interviewer with. It can also help `newbies' and those who simply don't know what to ask by providing numerous with intelligent and targeted questions that are generally important and can be relevant to most situations. Moreover, the author gives good advice on how to ask these questions, when to ask them and why should a a particular question be asked.
Don't make the mistake of going through the list and picking the questions that take your fancy without reading the advice - you may inadvertently create a wrong impression and the question may not be even relevant to the organization interviewing you - so make sure you do your homework.
The only reason I did not give this book a 5-star rating is because the format and layout were not very friendly.
