· Visited the company website 

· Read the job description in detail 

· Gained an awareness of the wider market in which we operate (who our competitors are, what our products are and such) 

What is impressive is when people 

· Have read up on our clients Directors or C-level via linkedin or trade press

· Know our clients stock price today and where this sits in our company history 

· Is aware of our companies goals or has an idea of what direction the company is currently taking
