Do your research – Before meeting the recruiter first take time to research the company they represent. Head to the company’s profile, company ratings, reviews about the CEO, insights and feedback from current and former employees. Further, be sure to go through the photos, videos and mission statements. Armed with this information, you’ll be prepared for every step of the interview process. The more detailed research you do of the company, the more information you have at your disposal to bring up during the conversation.
