You’ve sent away your CV, and you’re being asked to an interview. But how much do you know about your future employer? How much do you know about the company who will be paying your salary? Are you truly prepared?

Before going to your interview, make sure you are ready by finding out as much as you can about your prospective employer. There are many sources of information about nearly every company. Information is on the internet, in the library, in databases and available from your recruitment company (if the job has been sourced through an agency).

In addition, the internet should give you lots of information about the company and the industry in which the company operates. Most industries also have trade publications, and it is a good idea to find relevant copies to gain knowledge about the industry and current trends and issues, as well as how your future company fits into the sector.

Interview research tips:

  • Call the company that is going to interview you and ask for sales literature, annual reports, technical information, product brochures, information and so on.
  • Visit the company website, and look at financial information with a view to gaining a good understanding of what the company does, and their goals and values.
  • If available, also access the press area of the website. This will give you articles from the media and information about the company. It will also ensure you are aware of recent press releases involving the company.
  • If the company website does not have a press area, access information online through search engines such as Google or MSN.

Make sure you know what Contract you would like to sign.
