Preparing for an Interview by Researching

Prior to your interview, find out specific facts about the company: where its branches are located, what its products are, what its growth has been, and what its growth potential is for the future. Take a look at their recent press releases and find out information about their indusry and their competitors. It's hard to do too much research.


One of the easiest places to start is by checking the company's home page. Some publications and websites (available in the public library or on the Internet) providing this kind of information are:

• Company Annual Reports
• Thomas' Register of American Manufacturers
• Moody's Manuals
• Fitch Corporation Manuals
• MacRae's Bluebook
• Standard and Poor's Corporation Records
• Poor's Register of Directors and Executives
• Dun & Bradstreet Reference Book
Hoovers
Business.com
SEC's database of corporate 10k statements
American Society of Association Professionals
Professional Associations

Spending some time learning about the company so that you can ask informed questions can make the difference between an average interview and a great one!
