One of the best ways to nail a job interview is to do your background work about the company. Don a Sherlock Holmes hat if you may, but read up on past performances, events, company’s beliefs, upcoming goals and milestones. For this you need to come up with a SWOT analysis plan i.e understanding the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats of the company.
