Jan Reha and Kary York Describe How to Research the Job Market to Win the Interview

Interview Tips with Jan Reha, Career Discovery and Kary York, Insurance Resourcing

In this video Jan Reha and Kary York discuss how to research job market to win the interview.

Research is one of the most important actions in preparing for the job interview.  Ultimately, researching the company and job market will make you more comfortable and confident in the interview process.

First, look at the company you are interviewing for.  Get a clear understanding about who they are as an organization and what they do. Researching the company’s website will give insight to their services or products, the scale of their business, and target audience. Taking a look at their 5 year history will reveal their cycle as well as their current position in the market place.

Next phase, look at yourself. Focus on what you do and how that fits into the type of employee they are looking for. A clear understanding of the company will help answer how your skills translate into that position. Researching the company shows that you are serious and want that role. Be prepared to articulate the organization and the objective of the company.

"I was having trouble finding a career path -- I felt I could do a lot of different things. So I did an eight-week program with Jan. Researching the background of what my ancestors have done -- creating a family career tree -- helped both professionally and personally. We identified a strong interest area in which I'm now getting licensed. Taking the tests and talking to Jan was very helpful. She was clear about informational interviewing, and figuring out what to do next. You won't exactly know what you'll get out of it, but in the end she will shed light on things about you that you didn't even know were there. ."--Mike, 27, Seattle
