With the unemployment rate rising in January 2009 to 7.6%, more patrons are using library resources for job searches. Besides using the library’s Jobs and Careers InfoGuide did you know Morningstar’s Stock Screener can also help?
When looking for a job, it’s important to identify your criteria. Where would you like to work geographically? Would you like to work for a small, medium, or large company? What industry would you like to work in? And maybe most importantly, is that a financially healthy company? When you take this sort of reverse approach, you can really dig down and find companies that you may like and want to work for.
So let’s get started with a company search using my preferences: I want to find a company in Illinois that has at least 100 employees and is in the publishing industry. (One caveat: The companies covered are only on the major exchanges, so that limits searches to public companies, but that still leaves more than 10,000 companies to screen from.)
- To set up my screen I go into the Screen for Stocks.
- Under General information I choose Location of Company, Illinois.
- The next point is Number of Employees.
- (A new window open with the quartiles. Don’t worry about the distinction between big and small. Morningstar has that broken down in quartiles, for some context on size. Close this window)
- Change “=” to “>=“
- For my final screen setting, I find Stock Industry and set that equal to Publishing.
Voila! I’ve found four companies that fit my criteria. Now I can look at company profiles, access their Web sites, and find job openings.
Obviously, this is a far stretch from searching job sites and the classifieds, but for the persnickety job seeker, it’s something to consider. For anyone else, brushing up on company information before an interview is always a good idea.
