If you had asked this forum what they thought you should do to prepare for the interview, I think it is likely folks would have said things like...research the position, network, talk to colleagues who are knowledgeable about the position and business unit. These are the things you did, so good on you for being prepared and making sure you were able to put your best foot forward. Did you do anything inappropriate to get this information? Did you make anyone uncomfortable with your inquiries? Did your actions violate your company's code of business conduct? Based on your question, it doesn't sound like any of those things apply here. If your next interviewer asks you what you did to prepare, you should be able to confidently discuss your course of action and frame it in such a way that it truly demonstrates your interest and passion about pursuing the position. Answering all of the questions is just one part of the interview. Focus your efforts on being prepared, being honest, being true to your interests and the needs of the business. Best of luck!
