Six Must-Ask Interview Questions

6. What’s our next step?

Why You Need to Ask: This is your closing and the most important question to ask at the end of the interview. You need to know what happens after this point. Many books advise asking for the job now, but most people may feel too intimidated to bluntly do so. And with more candidates already scheduled for interviews, the company is not likely to make you an offer yet. You may also need to do some additional research on the company, making it too early to ask for the job.

A good compromise: Take the lead and set a plan for follow-up. You’ll also be able to gauge the company’s enthusiasm with the answer. Don’t forget to ask for your interviewer’s direct phone number and the best time to call.
