Google Search

Never discount a good, old-fashioned Google search. With a few key strokes, you can identify companies that align with your core values, such as the importance of work-life balance or innovation. Visit sites like The Muse to peruse the companies they profile – this is a great way to get an inside look at an organization and get a sense of what it's like to work there.

Even when you start your job search with a very strong "in" at an organization, landing a new job will likely require you to pursue multiple job opportunities at the same time. In fact, Amanda Augustine, a job search expert for TheLadders, recommends that job seekers continue pursuing new job leads even as they're entering the final interview round of another opportunity. To help you streamline this process and ensure you land a job with the right company, she encourages you to develop a target company list based upon your job goals.

This slideshow features Augustine's tips on how to research and vet prospective employers as you build a strong target company list.
