Learn About Your Dream Companies

  1. Browse online. Gather information from their website and LinkedIn. Introduce yourself on social media and strike up conversations. 
  2. Read the news. Local press and industry publications can also be revealing. Maybe your potential employer sponsors community programs or lost half its sales revenue.
  3. Seek referrals. Personal introductions make it much easier to set up initial meetings.
  4. Attend events. Networking sessions and business conferences are an efficient way to access lots of information and individual perspectives. 
  5. Volunteer your services. Do you want an inside look at the kind of work you’re contemplating? Maybe you can intern or volunteer at the organization or a similar operation.
  6. Identify decision-makers. Find out who you need to talk with. Calling the CEO directly could be the best route for senior positions. Otherwise, you’ll probably start out with hiring managers and department heads.
