To ensure that the right questions will be asked, you will need to take some time to prepare for the interview. You can do this by writing a list of questions that you would like to ask and then prior to the interview, practicing what you are going to say. You will want to take a notepad with you so that you can write down the answers that are given to you. This way you can make sure that you take the time to go over the questions that you are going to ask, as well as write down the answers for the questions that you are being asked. You will also need to ask about where you will get the information that you will need about any investments that you will be making.
