Just as an interviewer may ask you where you see yourself in five years, you should ask where they see your career going. That way, you can make sure there's an ongoing need for your services in their future. "Ask about the vision for the organization and how your role or specialty fits in," recommends Johnson. "Every organization has an idea of their plans. Of course, anything can happen, but they should be able to tell you their current plan." Some things better left unasked Questions are typically welcome in an interview, but as with anything, there are a few limits. Don't ask too much too early about perks, such as compensation, bonuses, time off or working from home. Your recruiter should provide you with information about all of these, but it's best to wait until later in the interview process before probing for more details. "When someone asks right away, 'What are you going to pay?' or how much time off they'll get, it can be taken as a red flag. The later [in the process], the better," says Johnson. By law, an interviewer can't ask about certain details, including ma rita l status, age, rel ig ious preference, gender identity and other personal issues. Similarly, you shouldn't ask your interviewers about these things. If family photos or college memorabilia is displayed, you can make polite conversation along the lines of "Lovely children!"
