Is it appropriate to have questions printed out that you would like to ask your interviewer (MD) for a video conference interview?

Absolutely ok. Shows that you came prepared. You can always say “I wrote down a few questions as I was preparing for this interview. Would you be ok if we went through the list of questions and topics that I have which we haven’t covered yet in our discussion?”

Yeah don’t just read them out but seems fine to me. It just shows preparation.

I give extra marks in my evaluation to candidates who show preparation. This is a delightful thing to see, always.

Definitely. It comes off bad if someone doesn’t ask any questions or seems unprepared

So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?
