Ways to Research an Employer Before an Interview

There’s no doubt that research is an important part of the job search process. But when it comes to researching potential employers, many people might not know where to start. In this blog post, we’ll outline a few ways to research a company before an interview. So whether you’re just starting your job search or you’ve already landed an interview, read on for some helpful tips!

When it comes to interviews, preparation is key. Part of that preparation should include research on the company you’re interviewing with. A great way to do that research is by talking to employees of the company online. You can find employees of most companies on social media, and many of them are happy to answer questions about their experience working for the company. This is a great way to get an insider’s perspective on what it’s like to work for the company, and it can help you decide if it’s the right fit for you. So before your next interview, take some time to chat with employees of the company online. It might just give you the edge you need to land the job.

Another way to research a company before an interview is to check out their ZipRecruiter profile. Here, you’ll find valuable information about the company, including their mission statement, culture, and values. This will help you prepare for the interview and make sure that you’re a good fit for the company. Plus, it shows that you’re seriously interested in the position and that you’re willing to do your homework. So before your next interview, take a few minutes to check out the company’s ZipRecruiter profile. It could make all the difference in landing the job.

Every job seeker knows that preparing for an interview is key to landing the gig. You wouldn’t go into an exam without studying, so why would you go into an interview without researching the company? A great way to get started is by checking for open and closed cases on the department of labor (DOL) website. This will give you a sense of any potential red flags about the company, such as a history of discrimination or harassment claims. Of course, it’s always possible that an open case is simply the result of an disgruntled employee, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. So before you head into your next interview, take a few minutes to do some research on the DOL website- it could end up being the deciding factor in whether or not you land the job.

Interview Question: What are your weaknesses?

Sometimes, interviewers literally pull questions off the internet to ask right before your interview begins, but do not make the mistake of not answering their questions strategically…it can cost you the job or career opportunity.

Some interviewers like to ask this question “What are your weaknesses?” to see how you respond non-verbally and along with what you have to say. This question can throw you for a loop if you are not aware of the objective. The objective of this question is for you, as the interviewee to communicate how you overcome weakness or challenges in your professional career by telling a story about yourself. In the video, I provide a couple of examples of how you would respond positively and professionally to this question.
