Is it okay to ask about benefits on the first interview? I have two interviews set up next week and I want to ask questions around health care coverage/cost and paid time off but I fear these type of questions will raise red flags and cause me to loose interview points for choosing what employers might consider sensitive pre-employment topics of discussion. I know salary talk is out of the question but are company benefits questions also taboo?

Yes sure its is? Ask me anything u wanna ask sir....

This is a landmine question. I was let go from my last job and 2x's in interviews I have cratered on this question. Best option from my standpoint, a new management team came in and they are bringing in their people. This in my opinion is best so your not saying it didn't like my boss which make the employer thing what if they don't like, they might just leave. Best to put it on the boss that they came in and they are bringing in their... see more

Is there a right or wrong reason to answer the question as to why you want to leave your current job? When I go on a interview, my reason for wanting a new job is for advancement but I sometimes feel like that's not a good answer. Any suggestions?

I just found this list of questions you can ask at the end of a job interview: http://www.businessinsider.com/questions-to-ask-at-end-of-job-interview-2016-4

Asking these questions demonstrate that you have an interest in the job, and may help give you an edge over other candidates who might not seem as engaged. Maybe choose a few that you are genuinely curious about. Remember, you are interviewing the company too!
