I recently came across this article in one of my job search/HR/staffing newsletters and I thought it valuable enough–in fact important enough–that I pursued permission to reprint this AMAZING list of questions job seekers should know. If you are actively seeking a new opportunity you MUST read this list! (Note that the article is titled 200 Questions while the book it comes from is called 201 Best Questions! Hmmmm…Guess I have to get the book to figure which one is missing!)
Please note the credit to author John Kador below the title of the article. If you visit jkador.com you can access a list of his writings and books. Prolific he is!
