Preparation is KEY. It is a major part in the application process and here’s why: 

1) You need to get to know the company and what they are all about. When you are cooking you don’t just jump into mixing a bunch of food together…right? You need to have some knowledge as to what ingredients will taste good together, learn some cooking styles and create lists of ingredients before you begin.  The same goes for applying for a job. You need to know the company’s background, their philosophy, their products, and services and what they value. Before you fill out the application you should research the company and make sure that they have what you are looking for, as well as making sure that you can fulfill their requirements. Nothing is worse than showing up to an interview unprepared and unqualified. You are not only wasting your time, but also the interviewer’s time. 


2) You should research what kind of jobs they are posting and what kind of employee they are seeking. By reviewing the business and what the job entails, you can be better prepared for the interview process. Getting the background of the firm will help you decide if you want to work for them. If it is not a good fit and you get the job, you will not be happy and will be looking again soon. The interviewer wants to see that you are invested in their products and the company as a whole. By demonstrating your history with the company, you will stand out amongst the other applicants. When you get that interview, you can show off your knowledge and really WOW the people in the room.  

All the information you gather from exploring the company can be used to your advantage. Employers want to make sure that they are getting the best employees, ones that are investing in them to help improve their company and be a great asset to the team. Let me know how your interview goes and how effective these tips were!
