Finally, you are asked to come in for an interview. You think to yourself – how do I get prepared?  Well, there are a few ways ProFound recommends to a candidate to research a company before the interview.

Company Website:

  • Research the company history, fact sheets, company newsletter and learn more about the company growth
  • Research the leadership and their backgrounds
  • Research investor information and company awards
  • Read all press releases posted on their website
  • Research their product and service offering
  • Learn how they generate revenue
  • Register to demo their software products
  • Research their office locations
  • Look at their human resource or career page to learn about their company benefits

Public Relations:

  • Look for recent press releases, articles and latest news in local newspapers, business journals or trade publications
  • Research company profiles through websites like Linkedin, Hoovers or Dun/Bradstreet
  • Look-up Hiring Manager’s Linkedin profile and get familiar with their professional background before the interview
  • Update your Linkedin profile in case they are doing the same.

Linkedin:

  • Look-up Hiring Manager’s Linkedin profile and get familiar with their professional background before the interview
  • Update your Linkedin profile in case they are doing the same.

Now that you did all your research – prepare a list of facts that you may want to discuss during the interview.  Next, write down questions you want to ask during the interview.  This will let the Hiring Manager know that you took an interest in the company and did your homework.
