Set up Google News Alerts for your target industry and prospective employers. This way, you will learn more about the key players in the marketplace and may be able to predict when new job openings will become available. For instance, if your dream employer wins a big contract with the government or announces plans to expand its operations to another region of the country, then the company may require new employees to handle the extra business.

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.
