Research the job you have an interview for

Posted on January 22, 2014 at 4:55 pm

There are a lot of things for you to consider before you turn up for an interview. One thing to remember, is that the person interviewing you has probably conducted, at least, dozens of interviews for the position your applying for, so they will probably be able to tell how prepared you are for it. One of the basic tenets of being a good interviewee is doing good research on both the job and the business that you are applying for a position at. If you are unclear about too many things which the interviewer asks you about, not only will you make a bad impression, but you will probably show yourself as being completely inept at the profession.

There are other things to consider when applying for a new position, but not researching can create a glaring hole in your repertoire, one which is not easy to compensate for. Of course, research is not going to be as important if the job doesn’t actually perform a unique task, but finding out what you can about the business and the job can really allow you to showcase your good characteristics when other opportunities to do so don’t arise.
