Job Interview Answer: Do You Have Any Questions For Me?


Job Interview Answer: Do You Have Any Questions For Me?
The last question you will probably be asked is whether you have any questions for the interviewer. Take the time to research the school district, the school you would be working for, the administration, and the city or town the school is in. From that research, you will most likely find several questions and comments to make at this time.

Asking questions shows that you are truly interested in the position and the community, and that you have taken the time to do some research. Not only will asking questions show your interest in the school, but learning all you can about the position and the district will help you decide if the position is a good fit for you also.

Things you might ask could include questions about the after school and community athletics programs, art or music clubs, and chess or academic clubs, especially if you've noted that the district excels in a particular activity.

You could ask how involved the school is with the community, what kinds of programs they participate in (for example, students getting credit for working at the local soup kitchen), especially if you plan to move there.
