Preparing for an Interview

Researching Your Potential Employer Researching your potential employer should be a high priority in any job hunt. Besides making sure they are someone you are willing to work for, you can also investigate how they hire people. There are many ways to do this research. Your first stop will be your favorite search engine. You can type in terms like “company name job interview” or “company name hiring process”. Once you get a search you are happy with, go to the pages you find and start taking notes on things such as common questions that people report during interviews or any other things that stand out that do not conform to a normal interview process. Once you believe you have all the information you can gather, begin reading over your notes and keep them somewhere safe until after you are done with your interview(s) with the company. You will want to refer to them before your interview.   Researching Common Technical Questions and Responding to Them The next thing you should research is common interview questions for your specific job that you are applying for.

Simply put in your potential job title, make sure you are searching in interviews, and press search. You will get a list of results from people who had interviews with the...
