Lists, Lists...and More Lists!

I am such a big fan of researching companies of interest as a strategic approach to the job search. Rather than sitting at the computer hunting and pecking for relavent postings on job boards, why not go to the source. Reviewing the opportunities on the "Careers" page of company websites is the modern day equivalent of pounding the pavement with your resume in hand.

My coaching clients hear me sing the praises of the Atlanta Book of Lists (at your local library or alumi career services office). Check out the Lists of Top Companies at INC. and see who may have your next career position listed on their "Career's" page. The lists are organized by category, including Metro Atlanta.
