Finding an Employer

Too many people are looking for jobs.  I don’t mean that they should not be seeking employment, but that they should be doing so in a different way.  Rather than just looking at postings on a job board, a smart job seeker will build a database of potential employers.  One good way to do this is to bookmark the websites of companies you want to work for.  Another strategy is to read business and industry news and note companies that are growing. Track companies and employees on LinkedIn.  Become an expert in your industry.  That knowledge will make it easier for you to do more than find a good job.  It will let you manage a satisfying career.
