Career Quick Tip, Asking Questions in the Interview

Most interviews end by asking if you have any questions. This is your opportunity to show you’re invested in the company and that the company is a good fit for you. Ask questions about the company’s values, environment, community and culture, daily practices, etc. For example, you can ask “I really value teamwork and community, does the position have many opportunities for collaborating?”
