10 Questions to Ask at Job Interviews

As a recovering Human Resources employee, I remain interested in the employment process and developments in the industry. I also try to put the skills I've learned to work for our DeMolays, assisting them with resume writing and interview practice. Just this week, I noticed that "Dad" Tom Moyer had a major job interview. According to him, that interview was easier than the State Master Councilor Interview Panel! DeMolay can prepare you for some of life's major moments and interviews definitely fit into that category.

The biggest skill I find that most job seekers lack is the ability to ask insightful questions about the job they are applying for. Yes, that's right - you should be asking questions too! The interviewer is there to determine if you are a good fit for the company. You are there to determine if the company is a good fit for you. You can also score major brownie points by showing that you've researched the firm and have an understanding of the business.

The Art of Manliness recently published an article entitled 10 Questions You Should Ask at an Interview. I encourage everyone to give it a look and file it away for the next time you are up for a job or a promotion.

I look forward to seeing everyone at Autumn Day at the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown this weekend - safe travels!
