In the inquiry stage of the interview the interviewer will ask you many questions to obtain a clear understanding of your education, previous experience , achievements, short and long term goals and aspirations. Prepare to ask some questions of your own. You’ll need to clarify for whom you’ll be working or reporting to, what you will be expected to do and so on. Your questions will indicate to the interviewer that you have done your research on the particular position in question.

Remember that you share a responsibility to keep the interview focused on your ability to perform the job that you are being interviewed for. Do not volunteer illegal information that is unrelated to your capabilities as a potential employee.
