It is important to know the background of the company that you are interviewing for. This will help you align your skills with what the company represents and how you can add to that. It also shows the interviewer that you have taken interest in who they are.

2.Reach out to previous employees or current of the company

If you know someone that has worked at the company that you are interviewing for, you can reach out to them and find out how their experience was at the company and they could even give you some pointers on how the company operates which can give you a better understanding of the company.

3.Make sure to prepare questions for the interviewer

Forgetting to ask questions during the interview is one of the top two mistakes most interviewees make during an interview. Make sure to prepare some questions for the interviewer while at the interview. Make them insightful though other than just asking anything across the board.

4.Learn the job description of the job you are applying for

What does the job you are applying for entail and do you qualify to apply for it? Use the information the company gives to tailor your CV to fit into what the company is asking for.
