News and Recent Events

When you go into a job interview, it’s always a good idea to be knowledgeable about the company’s latest news and updates.

Most companies have a page on their website dedicated to press releases and events. This is a great source for you to find out information regarding the company’s latest news and updates.

Do you have an upcoming job interview? Want to be a stand-out candidate? Guess what, top candidates know a secret that helps them shine brighter than all the others. A crystal ball, you ask? Um… no. A relative working high up in the company? Well, maybe. But even without that advantage, candidates can still make a great showing. How? By researching the company before going in for the interview.

While first impressions are crucial, it's equally important to be prepared and show that you know what's up. Even with the best credentials and loads of experience, a candidate can make a bad showing by looking underprepared or, even worse, uninterested in the company. By putting on your detective hat and investigating potential employers, you’ll discover details about the employer that will better prepare you for any interview.

With the right research, you'll better understand what the company does, what they're looking for in a candidate, and more importantly, how to better answer interview questions and position yourself as the best candidate.

Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, has identified seven areas you should investigate about a potential employer before your interview.
