Job Search Information
Searching for a job is a detailed process, and the Office of Career and Professional Development is here to help you navigate it. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with a career counselor. For assistance with how to begin your job search, what steps to take and what strategies to use, please read the Job Search Steps and Strategies page. Keep your job search organized with a Job Search Worksheet.

The two databases below allow users to identify companies within a certain country, state or city. One can access the library's databases. Next, scroll down the alphabetical list and click on one of the two databases listed below:
- The Gale Company and Business Resource Center is a very good database for obtaining information on many public company and private companies.
- To find major companies within a certain country, state or city, click the "Advanced Search" tab.
- Change the content area to "Company Profiles/Products." You can then limit by keyword, SIC or NAICS code, AND limit to a specific country, state or even city. [SIC and NAICS are codes that allow industry-specific searching.]
- LexisNexis Business is another very good database for researching companies or industries and for identifying companies within a country, state or city.
- Click on the "Create a Company List" link on the left-hand side bar. The "Create Company List" tab should then be highlighted at the top of the page. Please note that "All Companies" is the default. You have the option to change that with the drop-down menu.
- Also, you can enter any other limits to your search (number of employees, sales revenue amount, etc.).
- Go down to the "Search Business Description for" line. Type in your keyword, such as "computer" (LexisNexis automatically searches for regular singulars and plurals, so you don't have to use the *, but if you do, that's OK.)
- In the "Geographic Information" section, LexisNexis allows you more options than Gale. You can limit by county, by zip codes, area codes, and you can search by multiple cities, states, etc.
LexisNexis usually takes several minutes to complete the search, so please don't get discouraged if results don't appear immediately on the screen.
