Here are some online tools to help find information about the industry or company of your choosing.

  • Hoover's
    Hoover's, from Dun & Bradstreet, is one of the foremost experts on finding information out about certain companies and industries. From its website: "D&B is the world's leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses, enabling companies to Decide with Confidence for more than 170 years. Today, D&B's global commercial database contains more than 205 million business records."
  • O*Net
    From the U.S. Department of Labor, the Occupational Information Network is a database of occupational requirements and worker attributes that describes occupations in terms of the skills and knowledge required, how the work is performed and typical work settings. It can be used by businesses, educators, job seekers, human resources professionals, and the publicly funded Workforce Investment System to help meet the talent needs of our competitive global economy.
