Researching companies

professionals working together on a project

One of the most common mistakes in an interview is to carry out insufficient research on those you are meeting with.

Taking the time to do a little more research will show you are serious about the job and make you stand out from all the other candidates. Succeeding in an interview depends on many factors but by researching the right information you can give yourself the best chance of securing a role. The interviewer will take this as a sure sign that you're serious about the company, job and future career.

Ask your consultant

Your recruitment consultant will have met the client and can provide you with specific job information before you attend interviews. They will also give details of the job location, skills and experience required, size of the firm and salary. Ask for company brochures and website addresses, allowing you to find out as much information as possible for your interview.
