Be bold. If you sense some concern surrounding a particular issue, bring it out in the open. When it’s your turn to ask questions, and after you’ve asked a few of the more standard ones, say something like, “Are there any concerns or small question marks about my candidacy that I can have the chance to address before I leave?”
Most recruiters will appreciate your forthrightness and maturity in acknowledging that you’re not perfect and are “hungry” for the chance to give your perspective. I’ve always appreciated when candidates are confident enough to address any concerns right away; they have often been able to change my perception and decision to invite them back.
