Your interviewer is not your friend.

But you already knew that, right?

So, why do so many job candidates seem to make this mistake?

5 Must-Ask Questions at Job Interviews | The Savvy Intern by YouTern

Think an interview is a one-way street? Think again. One of the biggest mistakes a job-seeker can make is not asking any questions at a job interview.

  1. You may want to ask them about their corporate utlucre. You cannot make any changes to your approach until you know what you are up against. I might be worthwhile to go back to some of these companies and ask them to explain to you what they are talking about. Ask them to clarify what they mean.

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
