Most interviewers will give you an opportunity to ask questions after they've finished grilling you, be prepared to make the most of it.

In many ways this is the most important part of the interview. The interviewer has been in charge up until now, but this is your chance to prove you want the job and are capable of doing it.

Andrea Workman, author of How To Find A Job, said: "When asked do you have any questions? Do not answer no. This can indicate that you are not interested in the job.

"Instead, show your interest by asking specific questions about the organisation and what you can expect from the job."

Raad Ahmed, founder and chief executive at New York-based online legal services platform, said: "You may not get a straight answer on the company culture since it may be portrayed in a flattering light, however one way to dig deeper into this is to ask how you would fit into this culture and press for more specifics."

How do you measure staff performance?

Dana Groff, a director at New York-based IT group MongoDB, said: "One of the best questions from a candidate is when they ask me to cover our review process and particularly to explain how they can be successful in their role.

The candidate can dig into how we evaluate and measure candidates and what they have to do in order to prepare for their role in my team. This tells me that they are serious about being successful and they care enough about my team and company that they want to be successful here."
