Hiring authorities are positively impacted when a job seeker has taken the time to learn about their company. One of the most effective ways to sound like an insider is to speak with individuals who may have worked for their company. These individuals can describe the company culture, selling points and provide inside information to help you sound informed.
When you tell a company you have “targeted them” as someone you want to work for, you have a competitive edge. You then follow this statement up with WHY you have targeted their company. This is where the inside information you have obtained is invaluable.
If you don’t know anyone who has worked at a company you have targeted, do your research on the Internet and read what others have written about the company. You can also utilize social networks like LinkedIn to find employees from these companies. If you do your research and obtain inside information, you will be more prepared and you will receive a higher salary offer when you ace your interview!
