Developing your list of target companies is one of the critical steps in your job search process. This list will help you make sure you’re applying to companies that are growing and are a good match for your skills and priorities. This list will also help you target your networking and potentially connect with folks at those companies.
Start small 15-25 companies and continue to grow your list. Make sure to refine your list by identifying your desired industry, company size and geographic location. And of course, the list should change as your job search evolves.
So, where do you start to develop your list? Here are some great resources recommended by our staff:
- Employer Locator
- New York State Department of Labor Business Directory
- Greater Rochester Enterprise Business Lists
- COMIDA Press Releases
- Rochester Business Journal (or visit our Career Center to view the RBJ Book of Lists)
