You've applied for the role, maybe had a phone interview and done an online competency test to make it to this point. You have prepped for and completed the interview - and you think that it has gone relatively well.

Great, but it isn't time to celebrate just yet. It is time to answer the question that many of you most dread when undertaking an interview ... "do you have any questions for us?"

Well fear not below are the top 11 questions that you can ask when being interviewed:

1. What is a typical day like at [inset company name]?

2. What do the day-to-day responsibilities of the role look like?

3. What does success look like in this position, and how do you measure it?

6. What’s your favorite part about working at the company?

7. Where do you see the company in five years?

8. What are the next steps in the interview process?
