Tips on Using Employer Web Pages for Career Exploration

These links to leading employers can help you learn more about the industry, and achieve your career objectives even faster.

Most company Web Pages are packed with useful information.  To get the most out of them, and to give you an edge in securing the opportunities you want, review the following to help you use all of available resources. While you are probably generally familiar with most of these, they are worth a second look to get into the specifics.

About Us section – This section will tell you what the range of business the company is in.  Some large corporations have many divisions that can actually do very different things.  If you are fortunate enough to secure an interview for an internship or permanent employment, the About Us section will become even more important to you.  Study it to become familiar with the details of what the company does, and what it stands for, so you can answer questions confidently with detailed and intelligent responses.

Diversity and Inclusion Statement – Learn about a companies commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.  Learn about specific opportunities for those that identify with one or more groups.

The Jobs listings section  A big secret is that many positions never make it to the big job boards.  For various reasons, including the cost of advertising them, the most up to date openings and opportunities are going to be directly on the jobs section of the employer web page.

Student/Campus/University Page –

  • Co-Op Programs let you learn on the job while enrolled in school
  • Internships are often offered during the summer, and sometimes during the year, pay attention to the application deadline, some are earlier than others.
  • Some companies have internships for High School students
  • Early Career Programs including Leadership Development Programs often in their own section, separate from regular job listings.
