How to Stalk Your Future Employer (Without Being Creepy)

I probably don’t have to tell you that you need to research any role or company you’re applying to. With the amount of information available online, it’s absolutely inexcusable for a candidate not to know the basics before an interview.

But how much, exactly, are you supposed to know? And is there such a thing as knowing too much about a potential employer or hiring manager?…Don’t worry, though—all your investigative research won’t go to waste. Follow these guidelines, and you can continue your employer stalking without being a creep.

Company research is very important but knowing a little too much can also cost you the job. Ryan Kahn has some helpful tips on Interview Etiquette when it comes to doing company research. You should absolutely do research on the company. Doing research and looking up information in the form of visiting their website and looking at the LinkedIn profiles of employees, Glassdoor reviews will certainly help you get on the inside track. Knowing the names of the interviewer’s pets and where they spent their last three vacations is overkill. Know where the limits to company research are with Ryan Kahn’s article for Daily Muse.

The Only Interview Question that Matters

But the real secret ingredient is not the question; that’s just a setup. The most important elements are the details underlying the accomplishment. This is what real interviewing is about — delving into the details.

The Only Interview Question that Matters – BusinessInsider, Lou Adler, Inc.

Want to know the question? If answered correctly, your ability to get the job will be so much greater.

Of course, the question is not the only part that matters. It’s how you create the story to your accomplishment. Was it a challenge? Did you do things that were different, but proved to be successful? Did you have to convince colleagues or managers of your vision? Everyone has an accomplishment they can be proud of, whether you are in College, a person in the middle of their Career, a Career Changer, or any other type of circumstance. If you can calmly and clearly explain to a hiring manager what steps you took to reach your goal (think of the STAR Method for guidance) you will be head and shoulders ahead of others trying to get your job.  You can do this!

What if your greatest accomplishment is not related to the job? If done correctly, you should showcase your all-important transferable skills. Don’t know about transferable skills? Learn more about this through the Department of Labor’s Website, My Skills My Future.
