I don't actually understand why most applicants missed this opportunity to ask questions during the interview. Maybe aside from the fear of giving negative impression they are thinking that it really wouldn't matter.

Job seekers forget that an interview is a process to learn about each other. It's not a test to pass. It's a conversation where two parties are figuring out whether the potential collaboration can be mutually beneficial.
I would suggest candidates to think "What do I want to learn to be sure that this is the right job for me?"

Thanks for the reminder, Alexandra.

I would take it one step further - prepare about 20 questions to bring to the interview. The best candidate asks good, open ended questions that create a dialogue, helping both candidate and company determine if it's a right fit.
