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

💰Sometimes you have to take a job for a number of reasons.

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

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

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

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

🔎 Indeed, Likely the best resource outside of LinkedIn for online job search, but also a great resource for employer reviews.

🔎 Comparably, The new tool on the block, which lets you compare employers, brands, and salaries.

🔎 CareerBliss, Provides their Bliss rating along with all the insider information on a company, their salaries, and more.

    Those are yours alright! . We at least need to get these people stealing images to start blogging! They probably just did a image search and grabbed them. They look good though!
