Employer Research Resources

In addition to preparing for questions you may be asked and practicing your tone, eye contact and posture, etc., an extremely important part of getting ready for an interview is conducting research on the firm or company. Sharing your knowledge of the firm or company shows you are really interested and enthused to work for them. In addition to looking at the potential employer's website, take a look at some of these resources:
