Questions NOT to ask in IT Job Interviews

Any IT recruiters and IT staffing firms will tell you it’s imperative to ask questions in the interview.  Not asking any questions makes it seem like you’re disinterested in the IT jobs you’re being interviewed for– or worse, you’re willing to just take any job.  IT recruiting agencies and IT staffing companies can easily place IT professionals who ask smart questions that reveal that they know what they want and how to contribute to an employer.

It’s important to your success in job interviews to avoid asking questions that make you and your technical recruiters and IT recruiting firms look bad.  Here are 2 kinds of questions to avoid.  Firstly, some questions will make you look more like a clock-watcher who wants to give minimum effort.  Secondly, you also want to avoid asking questions about benefits and compensation.  The focus of the interview for you should be the job, its duties, the company, and the company culture.  Your IT staffing agencies and IT recruiting companies will help you with negotiation compensation.  Harping on these topics will hurt your chances, if not entirely kill them, of getting the job.
