General Resource : Resources for Job Search >> 4. Job Interviews

  • Employer Research
  • Before an interview, make sure you thoroughly explore the company's Web sites. These will often include information such as a vision, mission statement, product descriptions, hiring policies, and job openings. Locate Web sites by entering the full name of the business into a search engine such as Google or Yahoo.

    When you're looking at company Web sites or conducting research at a library, try to answer some of the following basic questions (the answers will both increase your knowledge about a company and prepare you for classic interview questions such as 'What can you tell us about this company?').

    Questions to think about when researching employers:
    • What products/services does the employer provide?
    • How many employees does the employer have?
    • How long have they been in business?
    • Where is the employer located? Does it have more than one location? Is it on the bus line?
    • What is the employer's mission statement or philosophy?
    • What is the company's financial situation? Is it making money?
    • Has the employer undergone any downsizing in the last five years?
    • Is the employer involved in community services? If so, what?
