Do your research

One of the easiest ways to impress an interview panel is to be prepared. It is also the easiest way to kill your chances of receiving an offer. Don’t be that guy. Preparation is key. It seems elementary but you should have a solid understanding of what the business does when going in to meet the team. Start by reviewing the website, read company blog posts and look for any white papers you can read. You are sure to score bonus points during your interview if you can mention what you’ve learned. The more you know the more confidence you will have in the interview.

Stand Out

The million dollar question: How do I stand out among my competition? There is no perfect formula but the best place to start is LinkedIn. Make sure your profile is up to date with all your current work or internship history. Ask for recommendations from former employers, coworkers, or clients. Essentially you will have multiple recommendation letters singing your praises for the whole world to see! Utilize this tool to its full functionality and you will be sure to get noticed.

Use your network

If you are interested in us, do some LinkedIn research to see if you know anyone who works here. If you do, ask them to pass your resume along to their recruiting team. You could also look for industry meetup groups in your area; they are a great way to make connections.

Show your enthusiasm

Go the extra mile

Typical application processes are straightforward. Apply online then wait to be contacted. Instead of sitting at home crossing your fingers for a call back, take matters into your own hands. Reach out to a leader in the organization and ask for an informational interview over coffee. This opens the door for opportunity. The opportunity allows you to network with industry insiders, gives you a chance to sell yourself and helps you understand what that company may be looking for in an employee.
