WRITE YOUR QUESTIONS DOWN You’ve secured a job interview. Great. The first thing you do is homework (see Chapter 4 for a discussion on researching the company). The second thing you do is write down the questions you will ask. Some job seekers are uncertain about whether they should write down their questions. If they do, should they bring them to the interview? The answer to both questions is yes. Doesn’t that look, well, premeditated? Of course it does. That’s the effect you want. See Chapter 5 for a fuller discussion of the issues around taking notes.

The more senior the position you are seeking, the more important it is to ask sophisticated and tough questions. Such questions demonstrate your understanding of the subtext and context of the position, as well as your confidence in challenging the interviewer. Hiring managers will judge you as much on the inquiries you make as on the responses you provide. If you don’t ask sufficiently detailed questions, it will demonstrate lack of initiative and leadership qualities that a senior-level position demands.

If you handle the situation right, what you do at this point may tip the decision in your favor. Some people say there is no such thing as a dumb question, only dumb answers. No interviewer believes that. As this book aptly demonstrates with examples of questions that applicants have asked in actual job interviews, magnificently dumb questions are asked every day. By the same token, applicants can ask brilliant questions too. It doesn’t take that much more effort to ask a brilliant question than a dumb question.
