A candidate should know the answers to the following questions prior to meeting the potential employer:
- What products or services does the company offer?
- When was the company established?
- What is the approximate sales volume?
- What has been their growth in volume and market share?
- What is their marketplace?
- Who are their competitors?
- Who are their customers?
Many times this information can be found on the company website but sometimes digging deeper is required.
