You should come to the interview prepared with a working knowledge of the company, its mission, and specialties. Your knowledge about the employer will show that you are selective about the jobs you apply for and that you actually find the company's work interesting. It will also demonstrate that you are thorough, detail-oriented, and professional--all favorable qualities when you are representing the organization as an employee.
