One question YOU ask can get you hired

Well—okay, there are no absolutely sure things. But here is a VERY clever, inoffensive strategy for getting the maximum leverage out of a job interview. Even if there are multiple interviews scheduled for the position you want, using this one question is sure to impress, and very likely to get you to the second round.

Fifty extra bonus points for you English majors who know enough grammar (having been the targets of my red-pencil comments on your papers) to spot the error in the way the question is phrased! Hint: it’s a common error in written material; although it’s becoming more common in spoken English, it is still “bad” grammar in formal written English.
