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

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, glassdoor.com: Find jobs and see company salaries, reviews, and interviews – all posted anonymously by employees.

🔎 Indeed, https://www.indeed.com/: Likely the best resource outside of LinkedIn for online job search, but also a great resource for employer reviews.

🔎 Comparably, https://www.comparably.com: The new tool on the block, which lets you compare employers, brands, and salaries.

🔎 CareerBliss, https://www.careerbliss.com: Provides their Bliss rating along with all the insider information on a company, their salaries, and more.

🔎 Vault, https://www.vault.com/browse-top-companies: Indexes company reviews in 120 industries.

🔎 Great Place to Work, https://www.greatplacetowork.com/certified-companies: Actually certifies companies that are considered a great place to work.

🔎 Kununu, https://www.kununu.com/us: Claims to shed light on the real deal of what it is like to work for a particular company through their reviews.

🔎 The Job Crowd (UK), https://www.thejobcrowd.com: Referred to as the Trip Advisor for jobs for early career. The site is UK-specific and provides a ranking system based on employee feedback for graduate and apprentice employers.

🔎 Jobbite, jobbite.com: Bare bones site with reviews on what it’s like to really work at a company.

🔎 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government, http://bestplacestowork.org/BPTW/index.php

    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!
