Invest your time and energy into learning more about the companies you are interested in, as well as the people who make up those companies. Whether you spend time reading up on the company, their industry, and their clients; participating in networking events/interviews; or simply reaching out to recruiters or professionals for more information about their experiences with the company, you’ll be glad you did. By doing these things, you’ll be getting a better idea of what to expect if and when you go to work for a particular firm, hopefully minimizing any surprises.  Additionally, you will spend a great deal of time at work, with your co-workers – it’s a worthwhile investment of time to get to know a few of them and see if you could picture yourself as part of the team, before you sign on.
