Do your homework

Performing research on the company / organisation you are about to interview with is imperative.

Firstly, it is highly likely that you will be asked “What do you know about us?” but secondly you also want to fully understand the company / organisation you are potentially about to join.

Below are some questions that have arisen in recent interviews:

  •  What do we specialise in?
  •  Who is our CEO or Managing Director?
  •  What is our share price?
  •  How long have we been in existence?
  •  Can you tell me about a recent article you have read about us?
  •  Who do you consider our competitors to be?
  •  What challenges do you think we are experiencing within the market?
