Topic - How much preparation do you do for an interview?

mkean - on 31 Oct 2012
How much preparation do you do before attending a job interview? I was pondering the qunatity of time and effort that I have put into preparing for them in the last couple of years and wondered if this is normal (admittedly I'm looking for fairly technical research linked roles so it is fairly involved):

Getting a background on the company (history, culture)
Looking for financial information on the company
Researching the industry as a whole
Comparisons of their products with competitiors
Looking at their patent filings to see what they may be working on
Googling the interviewer and looking them up on Linked in etc
Looking into any processes or equipment they may use (including looking into any equipment in photos on their website etc)
Learning the theory behind their current processes
Running through a set of stock answers for classic HR type questions

How does your interview preparation compare?
