Do Your Research

Secret #1: Research the interviewer and company before the interview.

Likable job candidates genuinely want to know about the company and the person who will interview them. By researching the interviewer and their company, you’ll show you’ve done your homework, which will make a great impression during the interview.

Begin your research by reading through the company’s website, checking out their LinkedIn page, and doing further research on Google and social media. Once you find out the name of the person interviewing you, look for details like where they went to college or organizations they’re involved with. Who knows, you might discover you have something in common with the interviewer.

Without a doubt, making a positive first impression is crucial in most pursuits, but never more so than when interviewing for a job. Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, notes that many job seekers are unaware of how to make that perfect first impression.

Most times, hiring managers and interviewers are looking for people whose personality and attitude will be a good fit for their business. If you don't come across in a positive fashion during your interview, regardless of how qualified you are, there's a really good chance you won't be getting a call offering you the job.

Huhman notes that if you want to impress the hiring manager during your next interview, you need to be a likeable candidate, and offers the following five secrets to help you meet that goal.
