You Can’t Do Too Much Research

With so much information readily available online, there is no excuse for going into an interview underprepared. To impress, learn as much as you can about the company you want to work for.

Keep up-to-date with their products, goals and any awards and developments relevant to your role. Giving yourself a good general overview and knowledge particular to the role will impress the interviewer and show just how good a researcher you are.

Go Social

While you’re researching your new potential employer, they’ll be looking into you. Many employers look at the social media of a candidate before the interview as well as during the interview process. It’s an opportunity to make a good impression before you walk through the door. Make sure your online and social presence is up-to-date and professional before your interview. Keep personal and professional accounts apart. Check your Twitter profile for any tweets which could have a negative impact on your suitability. Maintain an up-to-date LinkedIn profile and ensure blogs posts are recent and relevant. This is the perfect way to enhance your chances of success.

Armed with these tips and your specialist knowledge and experience, you have the best chance of landing your next marketing job. Good luck!
