@prettypinkpro: "Hire Friday Twitter Chat" (aka #HFChat)…recap by @EmploymentGuide

The quoted dialogue below was gathered by Brandon Lawson (aka @EmploymentGuide) during an online chat on Twitter last week. These weekly discussions are referred to as “HFChats” – for Hire Friday chats. The discussions between job seekers, and HR professionals provide insight to how hiring decisions are made.
We’re glad Brandon found our response worth mentioning on his site. Thanks, Brandon!

This past Friday, we took part in another Hire Friday Chat forum on Twitter. If you were not a part of the fun, I’ll bring you up to speed. Our Hire Friday Chat topic was about The Art of Asking Interview Questions, and was hosted by John Kador (@jkador) and Adam Eisenstein (@McGrawHillJobs). This was a very educational forum, explaining why it is important for jobseekers to ask questions during the interview. Here is a recap of the chat’s questions and some of the best answers: 
Q1. Why is it important to ask questions? 
A1: @JanisSpirit: Asking questions shows engagement, involvement and wanting the job. ASK! 
Q2. What kinds of questions are appropriate to ask?
A2: @DavidALee: Ask questions you can’t find answers elsewhere. If its on the website and you ask…Fail!
Q3. Should you save your questions until the end of the interview?
A3: @BrendenMWright: An interview is a conversation, a dialogue. It’s not a cross-examination. Engage!  
Q4. What are the best questions you’ve heard?
A4: @prettypinkpro: What is the leadership like in the organization? What is the leadership like in this particular division? 
A4: 
@comerecommended: That I’ve heard: “How would you define ‘success’ at this position?”
Q5. Should you ask the interviewer for a critique?
A5: @MikePetras: Ask in softer way: What is the next step in the process? Sometimes they’ll tip their hand. 
Q6. Why should you ask for the job?
A6: @ResumeDrEliz: Sure. If you truly want the position, close with a powerful, enthusiastic statement that says just that.
