What to Research Before a Job Interview

Preparing for an interview can be stressful. Happily, there are a few things you can do to make it less so, including doing some serious research on the company you want to work for.

Here’s where to start:

Study the job description

Don’t just quickly read the job description. Take time to think about each responsibility and skill in the list, and write down point by point why you believe you’re the best person for the job.

Also, if you know someone who works at the company, talk to them! Get as much information about the job, the people and the organization as you can.

Always check the company website

You can get a lot of information from just reading a company’s website. Find out exactly what the company does, who manages it and who its customers are. If you’re lucky, you might also find information on staff currently in the role you want.

Read the company’s latest news

Being able to share information about the company’s latest news in the interview shows that you’re interested in the company and what it does. Check its social media, “like” its posts and read its blog. This research will also help give you a clearer idea of the company’s culture and values.

Find out who’s interviewing you

Lastly, find out who is going to interview you. The person’s name may already be in an email that you’ve received about the job. If not, ask who the interviewer is likely to be. Then research their role in the company and their background. You can even check their LinkedIn and Twitter to find interests that you might share.

Finally, Good Luck!
