Yes, absolutely do your homework before you go for your interview. Learn as much as you can about the company, what it does, its purpose, size, how long has it been in existance, plans for growth, company goals and advancement within the company. If it is a publicly held company, generally a biography is available to read on the CEO & executive officers. This is to gather information & be knowledgeable of the company's background & how the company officers collectively contributed their work experience to have merged into the one company you are considering a career with.
Before you set foot in that prospective employers office, you will know precisely the job description you are applying for, with whom you will interview with and the name & title of the person who makes the hiring decision.
In doing your homework, you will be able to participate in knowledgable communications by stating how you can contribute as an employee in the position you are applying for - providing information of your work experience relative to the job.
At the end of the interview, you will be asked if you have any questions. Your answer will be: What are the opportunities to grow from this position and within the company?
A subsequent thank you letter expressing your enthusiasm & recaping your qualifications for the position is appropriate.

In responding to the above inquiry, it was thought to have been for giving guidance and advice to a prospective employee - not a consultant.

Dear Sir/Madam

Tips on for job inerview business development consultant prospective employee.
Thank you so much for the information , and i hopefully believe that i am going to try my best to win the job.

However , i have realised that my invitation to come for an interview only states that i should bring a pen, pencil only which means to me that i am going to write some case studies. Also the company does not have the besite address on their invitation letter so that i can research more about this company). I really want to be a business consultant because i love strategising and discovering solutoions for business.

I am a business marketing specialist and i hold the following BSc Economis, Marketing degree,Gr diploma in marketing research and an MSC in marketing all obtained from Univesity of Zimbabwe and NUST university in Zim .

I have held positions in brand marketing and key account management during my 10 year career.
