Succeeding at a job interview is all about coming prepared: Doing company research and being able to articulate how your unique skills and experiences are a fit for the job. Social media can help you gain crucial insights about the company you’re applying to, as well as the people you’ll be interviewing with, so that you can gain an edge during the interview process.

A LinkedIn company page also provides insight into the organization’s hiring practices. Take a look at the roster of current and former employees, and click through a few profiles. How long do most people stay with the company? Where do they go after?

2. Corporate Blogs and Accounts on Facebook and Twitter
