What should I ask my potential employer while being interviewed?
Everytime I go for an interview the interviewer wants me to ask him some questions. And he is unpleasantly suprised when I don't have any questions. But this is because when I go for an interview I'm already familiar with all the availible information about the company and the job. So, what should I ask?

If you use some of the information you have about the company and form it into a question, you'll show the employer that you have done your research. THAT is what they want to know. Here is a link to an article that may also help you.

You can get facts from doing your research, but oftentimes what you can't get are the intangibles. So I usually use the opportunity to ask questions like: --Describe the culture of your organization. --What is the work environment like? Their answers can sometimes tell you a lot.
