Prepare for Your Interview!

Why Should I Research a Company before an Interview?

When preparing for an interview, or preparing your application for that matter, it is generally impressive when an applicant demonstrates that she or he has researched the company.  You may therefore freely speak of the company's initiatives, plans, challenges, etc.

It is always advisable to examine the company's web page.  You can normally do this simply by searching Google or Yahoo!.

Other sources of company information are described below.

Company Information

Newspaper Articles

Although company profiles and reports are very useful, current developments affecting a company may not be included in such reports.  You are strongly encouraged to seek out any timely events involving a company in preparing for applying to or interviewing for a position for a given company.  Generally, it impresses a prospective employer when an applicant has taken the initiative to research the company.  Such current developments may often be found in newspapers.
