If an interviewer asks if you have questions—which he inevitably will—rattle off a few smart ones that demonstrate how thoroughly you have prepared for the interview. “It’s not good to show up and say, ‘How much do you pay? Do you offer 401(k)’s?’ If you say, ‘I was looking at your Web site…’ or ask about the stock performance over the last six months, that shows that a student was proactive enough to do research and ask meaningful questions,” says Roberto Angulo, president of recruiting and career network AfterCollege.
