Know your au­di­ence

Sim­i­lar to study­ing be­fore an exam, you must study your prospec­tive em­ployer thor­oughly be­fore an in­ter­view. 20% of com­pa­nies in the Mid­dle East find poor prepa­ra­tion to be the most common mis­take job seek­ers make in an in­ter­view, as re­vealed in the ‘Hir­ing Prac­tices in the MENA' poll, Jan­uary 2012. You should fa­mil­iarise your­self with the role that you are ap­ply­ing for, but also try and gauge the company's cor­po­rate cul­ture, and look through their mis­sion, vi­sion and an­nual re­ports.
