The most successful job seekers
approach the process of interview-
ing like an entrepreneur. To do that,
they realize they are a product that
is for sale and that they must sell
This means that in your interview
you need to demonstrate to the
employer how you can meet the goals
and needs of their organisation. To do
this, you have to know about the com-
pany before you go to the interview.
Some of the key information
you should know includes:
• Company goals and mission
• Products and/or services they offer
• Recent changes in the organisation
such as emerging technology, new
products, expansions, mergers, etc.
Also, for your own information, it
is a good idea to check financials on
the company to ensure their stability
By researching into these areas, you
can gain a knowledgeable edge on posi-
tioning yourself during the interview.
As a matter of fact, this extra work
will increase your confidence and will
keep you from walking blind into your
This process does not have to be dif-
Sometimes, you won t have to go to
such lengths in your research. You
might not have the time between
scheduling and attending your inter-
view, or the level of the position may
not require truly in-depth research.
Mark my words though, even at an
entry-level, research can truly set you
apart from the competition.
We are currently living in a world of
information availability. For a tiny, local
company you may have to look no fur-
ther than their yellow pages for their
advertisement. But, many companies,
both big and small, have a website.
That website will most likely have much
of the information you are seeking
about their products, service, history,
Be sure to look through all the pages
including their press announcements
as those represent their big announce-
It is also a good idea to use a search
engine such as Google, Bing, or Yahoo
to perform a search on the company.
In this way you can find articles written
about them, press announcements
about them, complaints and lawsuits,
You should also use your network
of contacts to find information about
the company (and even the interviewer).
LinkedIn.com, a social network, is a
great place for finding information
about the company because you can
find people who have worked there,
read their profiles and job descriptions,
and even contact them.
Once you have your research com-
pleted, you will be much more educated
about the company -- what their goals
are, what products and services they
offer, and potentially what challenges
they face. You will then be able to use
this information in your interview to
show your knowledge and interest.
Instead of entering the interview blind
you will be informed and ready to show
your commitment to the company,
which will make you shine!
