Question 1 of 30

This concludes our interview. Do you have any questions for me?

Asking questions at the end of an interview is beneficial for several reasons. First, it shows that you genuinely are interested in the position and the school and school district. It also provides an opportunity for you to clarify any uncertainties you may have about the role, the company culture, or the hiring process. Additionally, asking questions can help you stand out from other candidates and leave a lasting impression on the interviewer. Finally, it shows that you are proactive and thoughtful, which are desirable qualities in any employee. So, don't hesitate to ask at least a few questions at the end of your interview! Just be sure they are not questions easily answered when doing an internet search or reading the job description.
