How to Research Employers

Getting information about a potential employer can be done in a variety of ways. The Internet is probably the fastest way to find information. You can simply visit the employer's website or you can find additional information through sites like

Business magazines and publications are another source. You can also find some of the basics via Standard & Poor's, Thomas Registry, Dun & Bradstreet, and others.

Key Information to look for:

Growth: Look at trends (Where were they? Where are they now? What are plans for the future?) This includes things such as: growth in employees, locations, revenue, and technology.

Direction: What are their product lines? Where are they headed for the future? Are they up-to-date or lagging behind the competition.

Leadership: What do you know about the CEO and senior management team?

Problems: What problems, has the company had to overcome and what problems do they face now and possibly in the future? You want to know this information so you can point to your past experience as an indication that you can help them solve these problems.
