Researching Employers

Getting to know potential employers is an important part of your job search. Not only will it help to ensure that you are a good fit, but it is necessary to craft tailored application materials and to prepare for an interview. Employers want to know why you want to work for them.

Begin by reviewing the employer's website. Look for a mission statement, primary focus areas and projects, and staff biographies.  Do not stop at the employer's website.
