Company Intelligence (Part 2 of 2)

November 4, 2007

Alright, here are some of my bookmarked sites I use to find out rumors and ramblings within companies:

(in no particular order)

http://www.wurkpal.com

http://overhear.us

http://www.jobvent.com

http://criticat.com

http://valleywag.com

http://www.socialmoth.com

http://www.bossbitching.com

http://www.anonymousemployee.com

http://www.internalmemos.com

Ok, I know some of us in the past have used f***edcompany.com before and we all saw stuff going on and enjoyed reading about some of the going-ons and potential happenings, but that site went away so I’ve been using some of the above to find out more when I’m researching into companies. Also to note, I believe the job boards can be a great way to find out more by checking sites like indeed, jobster, simplyhired. Knowing whats going on in their market or knowing about their company culture to what they are trying to hire can give you the competitive advantage when reaching out/recruiting/doing ci. A couple other tools to wrap up this company intelligence post is to use google alerts and google trends as these tools can be very, very helpful also.

Until next time…All The Best!!!
