ICYMI: Interviewing 101 - Flip the Script Recap

Wow! What a great discussion we had on LinkedIn the last few days about questions to ask when you reach the end of an interview. I loved the interaction and everyone brought some great additions to the conversation.

From the response, this conversation reiterates the following:

#1) Asking questions at the end of your interview is IMPERATIVE to make an impression that stands out.

#2) A friendly reminder to always remember you are interviewing the company as much as they are interviewing you.
