What You Should Understand About a Prospective Employer

Before you even set foot in the building for a face-to-face interview, and these days this can be applied to pre-Zoom call, too, there are many things a job seeker needs to do to prepare.

The interview is all about showing how well you fit and that you are the aspirin for their headache.

Before you can demonstrate what a great fit you are with the company’s culture and how you mesh with the people you are meeting with, you need to know as much as you can about them. Before you can make their pain go away, you need to understand where they need help, and if you can identify areas where they don’t even realize they need help, you will be positioning yourself for a fantastic interview.

In this excerpt from a VIP Access-only Q&A ExecuNet’s Director of Coaching Services, Harriette Lowenthal, shared many examples of ways to give yourself a great chance to be in alignment with your interviewer when you have your next interview. This is advice no job seeker should miss!
