Researching a company can help you prepare for job, internship, and informational interviews, as well as job fairs and job shadows. Doing a little research about a company before an interview or job fair can help you stand out from the crowd of other applicants, and give you insights into the organizational culture and industry operating conditions. A general web search can give you a flood of resources of questionable quality, but the ones below are high-calibre, legitimate databases with vetted information.
See the resources below to research a company - each link takes you to a page with a link to the database as well as some instructions and screenshots about how to use it most effectively.
Once you've found out all you need to know about the company, see the following resources from the Career & Employment Hub to learn how to translate your new knowledge into insightful interview questions that show you've done your research. The focus of the Hub is career education, support, and professional development for students and alumni. The Hub team assists in the development of skills, knowledge, and experiences needed to begin a successful career.
