Employer Research

You can make a significant impact in your correspondence and conversations with employers by conducting research in advance. Know their general products or services and location (basic research), and recent announcements or innovations (advanced research).

“I read about the merger with Fiat.  How will the product line be affected?”
“I saw you opened an office in Charlotte.  I am interested in an internship in this location.” 

Your impact without research (-)
