  • Without naming the company here, are you told who the company are? Or are you just given the above to work off? – Gregory Currie Sep 17 at 7:30
  • Well i didnt feel to write the name of the company. Thats why i wrote what they mainly do. If its important to write the name of the company, Please do let me know i will do that. They surely have told me that company name – Aadnan Farooq A Sep 17 at 7:43

You know the name of the company, you can research some of the projects they may have worked on, and see how those projects align with your interests and capabilities.

They are not likely to care about any theory that you have accumulated over the years, they want to understand how hiring you can give them a practical benefit with their projects.

  • Thanks for the details. I have checked that but I couldn't found any completed project except "what they do", which I already mention in my question, on their webpage. However, I found that many companies are use Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Cost estimation, Project auditing etc which is related to me. Can I tell them benefits of utilizing AI in their company works? – Aadnan Farooq A Sep 17 at 7:53
  • (Hopefully you've searched more than just their webpage.) Sure, you can tell them the benefits, though you should note that they are a consulting company, which means they engage with clients and give clients advice. They are probably already aware of the benefits, but looking to improve their capability. – Gregory Currie Sep 17 at 8:00
