    What is the financial stability of the company? Are there any short term goals to sell or relocate the company or the position.

    I actually did ask in an interview once, “Okay, you asked me why I would be the right candidate for this job. Now I would like you to tell me why your business would be the right place for me to use the skills and experience I described. Why should I work for you and not your competetor?”
