BEFORE The Job Interview Do Your Detective Work!

BEFORE The Job Interview Do Your Detective Work!

Job Interview requires preparation for success.

You know what kind of job you want. A sales manager. An office manager. A legal secretary.

Whichever position suits your personality and skills, you’ll have a better chance of landing it if you do a little detective work––before the job interview. Learn as much as you can about the company, its goals, as well as products and services. Then during the job interview, you’ll be ready to ask good questions, and to show how and why you’re ideal for the job.

How To Research for your job interview

  1. Visit the company’s web site to find out about its day-to-day business, employee benefits, mission statement, and customer service.
  2. Consult friends, relatives, stock markets  or other source at your public library to be sure the firm has a solid reputation.
  3. Make a list of items you’re interested in learning more about, including: history, financial stability, plans for growth.
  4. Call the personnel department and ask for a brochure and other material that will help you decide whether this is the right company for you.
  5. Read magazines such as Business Today, Business World, Fortune, Business Week, and Wall Street Journal to learn more about the organization. Also read pink papers such as the Economic Times etc. to get as much information about the company as possible.
  6. Google the company, look for job seeker forums and posts to get a feel for a particular business.

Take Care of Yourself before, during and after the job interview

The more you know ahead of time, the better you’ll feel before, during, and after the job interview. And think about what a boost you’ll give the interviewer. People who are prepared, peaceful, and professional are those most likely to win the job. So do your detective work and you’ll be among them!
