Do your research

The key to a good interview performance is solid preparation. Being well prepared shows your enthusiasm and professionalism. This section includes tips to ensure you put your best foot forward.

Researching the organisation will give you a clearer picture of what the organisation is about and how your role fits in. Demonstrating that you have done your research will also help you build credibility with your interviewer. Company websites, media releases, and annual reports can all provide you with an overview of the organisation.

It is worth extending your reading beyond just what the organisation has produced so you can get an idea of the wider industry, the major players in it, and the reputation of the organization. Social media, industry magazines and general business publications can be useful.
