Research the company! - TIP

Gather as much information as you can about this company!

Letting them see that you know a lot about them shows that you are interested and super motivated!

You need to be able to answer questions like:

  • What do you think this company is about?
  • Are you aware of the story that made it to the news about us 2 years ago? What do you think about that?
  • Are you aware that we are now outsourcing part of our production to China? Do you know why?
  • Etc.

Of course, don’t criticize any aspect of the company!

That’s obvious.

Your time to give feed back will come when you get hired.

If they ask you for an opinion or a strategic line of action with one of the products they are developing for instance, you need to be well prepared!

You can boost the quality of an interview by showing how well you fit in the company before you even get hired!
