Conducting employer research is a critical aspect of running an effective job search. As such, I conducted some of my own research to compile a short list of the best websites for job seekers to study prospective employers.
Doing employer research is beneficial when you’re evaluating potential employers, filling out job applications, writing a cover letter, or preparing for a job interview. This means accessing valuable corporate culture and salary/benefits data as well as reading company reviews written by current and former employees.
