- Taking the time to research a company shows you are serious about the job and makes you stand out from other candidates.
- Having an overview of knowledge about the organisation will make you feel more confident at the interview.
- Knowledge is power.
Visit their website, have a good look through what is on there and make a few notes. You should also spend some time looking for information about the company across the internet and on social media. If feasible, we also recommend visiting one of their locations.
You should have a good knowledge about the industry that you are entering into and how that relates to the company you are interviewing for. Know their suppliers, competitors and their marketplace.
It’s not essential for you to know about your interviewer, but it is good to have a bit of an idea about who they are and what their role is within the company. Many companies have employee profiles on their website, or you could even search for them on the professional social network, LinkedIn.
