Your Interview's Tomorrow! Know What to Do?

Doug Hardy | Monster Staff Writer

Learn About the Company Online

Do some fast Web research, which will give you something to talk about in addition to the job description. Go to the employer’s Web site, or search the Web for information such as:

How big is the company in terms of annual sales or employees?

What does the company say about its products or services?

What recent news (such as a new product, a press release, an interview with the CEO) can you discuss?

If the company is public, the boilerplate at the bottom of its press releases will tell you a lot.

Basic research should take you about an hour.
