Library Help for Tough Interviews

Looking for a new job? Wondering how you can stand out in an interview? One thing you can easily do to impress an interviewer is to show what you know about a company. And the library can help you do that.

The Capella Library has several databases designed for researching specific companies, including LexisNexis and Business Source Complete. You can learn about a company’s size, markets, or recent history. They can help you identify companies you want to work for or give you the information you’ll use in an interview to prove that you’re interested and engaged.

For help doing company research, check out our guide: Industry & Company Information. It covers both library and internet resources that provide information about individual companies.

Company research isn’t just for courseroom assignments. It can help your professional life as well.
