Step 1: Do Your Research

Continue researching the company with which you are interviewing. Identify common areas of interest and include those commonalities in your reasons for wanting to work with the company. Go beyond the company's website by using sites like or, exploring the company's social media, and pay attention to their employee's LinkedIn profiles. Be sure to take careful notes of all this research.

Interviewers may ask if you know what's happening in their company. To prepare, research to see if the company has been in the news recently or if they have any upcoming products or projects they’re working on.

Beyond being able to answer questions intelligently, your research will also provide you with valuable information that will allow you to ask relevant queries and help you make a decision concerning your future with the company.
