March Interview Tips

Read about the company instead of spring cleaning:
Don’t limit your online research to the company’s website. Take the time to find current news and articles about your prospective employer, the good and the bad. Maybe they’ve recently completed a merger, or won a promising award in the industry that would make a good topic of conversation. Being up to date on a company’s latest news will prove that you care about the direction and trajectory of the organization you’re joining, not just the position you’re applying for. This tactic will also bring to light any existing red flags if they’ve been named a bad place to work or have recently experienced layoffs.
