  • This event has passed.

Location, size, industry – what are your priorities when identifying a potential employer? Whether you’re dreaming of a startup, nonprofit, or established company, you can surface your future employer by leveraging library resources. In this workshop, you’ll gain strategies to generate a list of employers based on the criteria that’s most important to you. Business Librarian Sarah Lane of the Management Library will demonstrate tools to save you time and make your job search more focused. Bring your laptop, and you can expect to leave with a list of “best fit” employers to target. Part One in a two-part series on using library resources during your job search.

Before attending the workshop, please be sure to register for free accounts with Capital IQ and CB Insights (instructions provided on linked library sites) so that you can follow along right away. If needed, contact mgtref@cornell.edu with registration questions.
