Career & Job Information: Company Research

Find information about careers, job interviews and resumes.

Use these resources to research companies.

Knowing who you want to work for or are applying to can set you up for a successful hiring process. After all, how can you work for a company or business if you do not know anything about its values, process, or ethics?

Here are some resources and questions for you to consider:

  • Is it a company you want to work for?
    • Do they treat their employees fairly?
    • What benefits do they offer?
    • What is the average salary for your position?
    • Have they been in the news lately? 
  • Match your values and skills to the company's values and needs.
    • Are they committed to environmental initiatives? 
    • Do they have a fair hiring process?
    • Do they support labor unions or offer unionization?
  • Have something to talk about in an interview.
    • Why are you a good fit for the company?
      • What can you bring to the company they don't already have?
