Researching Companies

In an interview you should always be prepared to let the employer know that you have done your company research.

There are a number of methods for researching companies using the internet and online databases. At Westminster many can be accessed through the Giovale Library home page. The library has created a guide for Researching a Company.

Of course, through Google, you can find a company’s website and read the information that the company wants you to see.

You can also collect information from 3rd party sources. For larger companies, many resources are available to Westminster students including: 


You will have to do a little more investigative research to find information on smaller and non-public firms.  You might want to ask for help from a research librarian or ask a Career Counselor.
