The job market has been on many of our minds lately. You may have already checked out Laurie Burruss’ course on creating an online résumé to help you get prepared for an upcoming career change.
I spent some time with the lynda.com human resource team and asked them to share a few tips on successful interviewing to help you in your job search. Here are their top four interviewing tips.
1. Do Your Research on the Company
Before going to an interview with a potential employer, always know as much as you can about the company. Find out what drives the company. How long have they been in business? How many employees do they have? What are the main products and services? This kind of information will help you understand what they might be looking for in an individual. Employers like to know applicants have done some research rather than coming in cold.
A good resource to start with would be checking out the company’s About Us page.
The lynda.com About Us page gives an overview of the company mission and motivation, and links to further company information.
