Research companies

During a job interview, interviewers ask questions to get to know candidates. But their main goal is to determine if a candidate will be a good fit for the position and the company. When you research the company you are interviewing with, the knowledge about the company will help you give specific answers to interview questions such as, "Why do you want to work for this company?" or, "What do you know about the company?"
