As an interviewer and hiring manager, here are 3 things a candidate can do to have a good interview experience:

1. Familiarize youself with the company and what they do. Go to the company website, create an account or make a purchase. Read the latest news about the company – Set up a Google news alert for the company for a few days before the interview
2. Do not use the same impact story across all folks in the loop. Have 2 to 3 impact examples that you can share with the folks in the loop
3. Have questions ready for the interviewers – ask about business, culture, career path, etc. Any information that you need to make a decision to join this company or not. You are also interviewing the company- make sure the fit is mutual
