Do Your Research

by Aug 23, 2017

Ideally, you’ve already researched the company to which you’ve been invited to interview because you wanted to convey knowledge and interest for the company in your application. If you haven’t done your research yet, don’t worry– there’s still time before your interview. In his article “5 Easy Ways to Research a Potential Employer Before the Job InterviewScott Singer describes five very simple ways to research a company so you can walk into the interview well-informed and ready to amaze.

Here are our favorite tips from Singer:

  • Look at the company website. Everyone has a website these days, and the best source of information will be on the “about” page. That’s right– one quick google search and you have endless information about the company at your finger tips.
  • Look at LinkedIn. Most companies will have a LinkedIn profile, and it’s an easy way to see what kind of company updates they’re publishing, who else works there, and possibly even what other jobs they might be looking to fill.
  • Check out their reviews. Want an easy way to read what a company’s clientele have to say about their goods and services? Or even what current employees have to say about the work environment? There are Google and Glassdoor reviews for that.

Do your research; be an informed candidate. Being in the know will make you stand out from other potential candidates.
