In interviews for IT jobs, IT managers will always provide time for the IT professionals they’re interviewing to ask questions. While this time might seem open, it’s important for IT recruiters to prep the IT consultants they’re working with to be prepared to follow the unwritten rules of asking questions in job interviews.
Firstly, IT contractors should know that the most important rule to follow is to always ask at least a few questions. Asking nothing makes you appear unengaged and/or unprepared. If you leave the time unused, you’ll most certainly be writing yourself off their short list for the job.
The second rule is to make sure that when asking questions, the IT professionals stay away from anything that sounds too demanding, indicates anything other than an impeccable work ethic, or gets into personal info of either the interviewer or themselves. There are plenty of questions that one may want to ask about the workplace culture or how the job will impact their life. But these questions are best left until after you have an offer in your hand. Otherwise, they create a terrible impression.
