Looking for work – Prep 2

Microsoft Excel spreadsheet

Take the “ideal next job” description that you wrote and look for the companies in your chosen geography, industry, etc. that would employ or do employ such a person.

Make a list in a spreadsheet with phone number, address, website  and rank it.

Which are your top ten?  Why?  Write that in your spreadsheet.

This is actually a time-consuming task, but it will be most useful.  Check each website and see what the company is doing.  Read their press releases.  This is your industry and you already know quite a bit, but brush up.

Then decide which ones look best to you.

Have at least 20 companies on this list.  You may never get to #20 but you may need to promote some companies and demote others.
