How to research and vet companies before applying to them or accepting a job offer

πŸ’°Sometimes you have to take a job for a number of reasons.

πŸ’ͺ And sometimes you have the fortunate flexibility to decide just which company fits your personality, salary expectations, skills offering, and succession plan.

πŸ”¬If you are someone that aligns with the latter, when deciding on a job, make sure to research and vet like heck!

πŸ”‘ I wanted to put together some resources below that may help you decide if the company fits your expectations.

Hope it helps!πŸ”Ž Glassdoor, Find jobs and see company salaries, reviews, and interviews – all posted anonymously by employees.
