If the employer has already addressed the answer to a question in the interview, you do not want to ask it again.
- What are the typical day-to-day responsibilities of this internship?
- What have your most exemplary former interns accomplished in this internship?
- How much guidance is given to interns in developing future career goals?
- What do you enjoy most about your work with this organization?
- Can you tell me more about the work environment? Is it more team or individual oriented?
- Can you tell me about the next steps in the selection process?
When you are researching the organization prior to your interview, it is important to write down any questions that arise. The more questions you can ask that are specific to the organization and show that you did your research, the better.
Do not ask about pay, hours, etc. These are questions you can discuss once you are offered the internship. Also, do not ask for feedback on your interview performance or ask if you got the internship.
