Researching a Company

It is always a good idea to research a company before the interview. The more you know about the company, the more confident you will be. This, in turn, will impress the prospective employer.

There are many ways to obtain company information. The internet is an excellent source of information. A company’s website usually gives a thorough description of the company’s mission, accomplishments and sometimes employee bios. The website may have links to recent press releases or give you directions to the office and company benefits. Some other ideas may be to check local newspapers and magazines for recent articles or ask friends and family if they have heard anything about the organization. Any information, statistics or current developments concerning the company that you can learn in advance will give you a competitive edge when interviewing.
