Finding a job can be tough. It can seem like a numbers game at times; you send out 25 resumes and get one interview. Once you get to the interview stage, you'll want to do further research about the company. Start with the website, reviewing their mission, values and culture. You can read employee reviews to see what their experience was like. Do your homework so that you can respond confidently. You can also talk about a recent news article or award they won.
