The Top 3 Things to Research

Are you attending a corporate briefing for a company you know little about and you have only 30 minutes to prep? Has one of your professors asked you to meet with them later today to give you a lead about a job opportunity, and you want to quickly check out what you can about the company?

When short on time, tackle these areas first. You can conduct a more in-depth investigation if you pursue your lead(s) later on.
