As you already know, theres a possibility that other
candidates may have items on their resume that you dont have on yours. They may have more education, more experience, or
additional skills you dont currently have. Dont
worry about that. These are things you should be aware of but not obsess over. They selected all of you as possible candidates,
and will determine through the interviews who they feel would do best at the job. Follow the steps below to learn more about the
company and the position you will be able to get a competitive edge in the interview.
the Company Web Site
Find the companys web site on the
internet and carefully read the content. Company web sites can be a bit on the dry side,
so you may need to remind yourself to stay focused in some areas. Try to paraphrase what you are reading in your own
words if you come across passages that contain a lot of jargon. Its helpful to print off some of this
material so you can go over it with a highlighter. This
helps you to remember what you have read and also gives you a great tool to refresh your
memory the morning of the interview. The idea is to soak up as much information about the
company as you can. Here are some suggestions
on what to look for:
How long has
the company been in business? How many locations do they have? If they have a corporate headquarters, where is it
Are they a
public company or a privately held? Are they an offshoot or division of another company?
If they are
public, how long have they been public? How is the stock doing?
