Once you've found a position or company you're interested in applying to, your first step should always be to research the company or organization. This is the best way to find information to help you tailor your application materials and give knowledgeable responses in an interview.
- What are the company's history and goals? Consider looking at resources like the company website, news reports, and industry sites.
- Is this a company you'd like to work for? Annual reports and mission statements can provide valuable insight and help you think of questions to ask in an interview.
- What's happening in the industry? Professional and trade organizations often have detailed websites with a wealth of information on current industry trends and companies that are hiring.
