BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — After the interview, the employer usually asks, 'what questions do you have for us'? These questions are very important, and our local experts share what you should ask to show how serious you are about the job.

It's important to ask questions to show that you are interested in the company and this is the time to ask anything regarding scheduling, benefits or other details you don't know about the position.

The main questions our experts say you should ask at the end of every interview is: What's your hiring timeline is? How would you like me to follow up? Who should I contact? Do you have a business car? Those questions will give you a clear idea of what to expectwhen you follow up.

Regarding salary, our experts say it's appropriate to wait for the second interview to bring it up. If it's not posted on the job posting, you can ask about the salary range. Have an idea on what you would be looking for just in case they ask your salary range.

If you can't remember what to ask, our experts say to bring a piece of paper that you can refer to, and it's ok to jot down a couple of notes in the interview.
