How to Research a Company Before an Interview
Doing your research on your next potential company can go a long way in making you stand out against other candidates. Firstly, being well-researched gives you a foundation to thoughtfully answer interview questions, like why you’re the right fit for the role and the company. It also helps you decide if the role is right for you beforehand, and if the company is a fit for your personal value system.
Review Their Website
A good company website can reveal tons of information, making it the best place to start. Look for the following sections: About Us, Services, Company Culture, History, Mission & Values, Awards, Testimonials, and Media Releases for announcements and updates.
A company’s LinkedIn profile page may just be a summary of what’s on their website, but it’s still valuable to review for additional content like shared articles, listed employees, and common connections (in case you have an in!).
Websites like Glassdoor and Indeed often post company reviews from past employees, but you can also discern valuable information with a simple Google search (i.e. company name + company reviews).
