Internet Resources

Internet research is a critical part of your application process. 

It is extremely important to research a company before an interview. Most companies have their own websites, and employers expect a serious candidate to be prepared to discuss its contents at an interview. And don’t forget that they’ll probably research you—more and more employers use the Internet every day to screen candidates and preview résumés.
