Get an Insider Interview Advantage with Glassdoor

By September 8, 2009

Follow me on:

Glassdoor, the company and salary research site, is full of excellent information for job seekers including company reviews, ratings, salaries, CEO approval rating, competitors, and much more company information. Job seekers can find and anonymously share company reviews, ratings and salary details, and now interviews, about specific jobs for specific employers.

Glassdoor's Interviews and Reviews section has a goldmine of information for job seekers. You can find out what candidates for the positions you are interviewing for were asked and get advice on how tough the interview was.

The benefit, of course, to knowing the questions you might be asked in an interview is being able to take some time to compose responses ahead of time. Being prepared for what you might be asked will help you feel more comfortable and confident during the interview. Glassdoor.com CEO Robert Hohman explains "Job seekers are able to find information about what they are going to go through during the interview process and what questions other candidates were asked during the interview

The more information you have about a company, the better your interview will go - and the more likely you'll be to get a job offer, so spend some time looking through the Glassdoor and gleaning as much information as you can about the jobs are interested in. Here's more on getting insider interview advice from Glassdoor.

Alison,
Once again, right on the money.

Between searching for company employees company news in LinkedIn and Glassdoor and then connecting with employees of the company for referrals, its hard to understand why job seekers aren’t researching companies like this.
