It’s common advice among job seekers: when you’re interviewing, you need to interview the employer right back. After all, you’re the one who is potentially going to fill this position, so you need to know if it’s going to be a good fit, right?
Except that while salary ranges, benefits and schedule flexibility are important details you deserve answers to, hiring managers don’t appreciate questions like these until at least your second interview (or maybe even after they’ve made you an offer).

Do you know what’s more stressful than a taxing job? Not having a job at all.
Being on what feels like an endless job search produces high levels of stress, which can lead to health issues and changes in mood or attitude. In turn, these changes can impact your entire job search experience — for the worse.
To be a viable candidate for a job, you need to be in good mental and physical shape. No one wants to hire a person who comes to work feeling sick and run down everyday.

You crafted a great cover letter, made sure everything in your resume was in order, and landed an interview. Everything seemed to go smoothly during the interview and you came out feeling confident.
