Thinking ahead and having questions for the employer is a good thing. It shows them that you are a serious candidate giving careful thought, and not someone who’s just applying to dozens of jobs to simply take the first job offer that comes their way. More often than not, the interviewer will come to the end of the interview process asking, “Do you have any questions for me?” As a job seeker, you must always have questions. Saying “no” implies you are not very interested in the job.
