This article will give you great info on how to research jobs on employers’ websites
Job boards may not list all open jobs in your field, as some companies’ jobs might not be promoted outside of their website. Because some jobs are not advertised outside of a company’s career site, you should research companies in your profession and directly apply for jobs on their websites.
How to Research Companies in Your Profession
Researching companies is quite simple. Below are 4 ways to do so.
Research local companies in your profession.
Think of all the companies in your local area or even companies outside of your area, you would like to work for. Go online and look up their career pages. If any of these companies have job openings that match your qualifications, apply for those jobs on their career pages.
Ask current and former colleagues.
Ask your current and former colleagues about companies in your local area with jobs in your profession. Once you have a company’s name, look up the company online and find their career page and see if they have job openings in your profession. If they have openings you like to apply for those roles.
Do a Google Search
You can research companies in your industry by doing a simple Google search. In the Google search bar, enter your local ZIP Code/postal code and then the industry you are in. Different companies in your local area will pop up. From the results, choose a few and click on their sites to see if these companies have job openings listed on their career pages. If you see an opening that interests, you apply to them with your resume.
Research Fast-Growing Companies
Many small fast-growing companies may not have the budget for online job ads or recruiters. This being the case, a potential area to research is fast-growing companies. To do this, type “fast-growing companies” in the Google search bar and you will find a list of different sites. Look at this list and if any catch your eye, click on the company’s website and see if they have job openings in your skillset. If any positions match what you are looking for apply to those roles with your resume.
There are many jobs that may not show up on job ads. Therefore, researching companies and applying directly on their websites will give you additional avenues to search and apply for jobs. Also as always make sure when applying you use a professional-looking resume. At the end of the day, you can find great jobs on employers’ websites but if you do not have a good resume no one will call you back.
