Identify Companies

An effective job- or internship-hunter knows the companies or organizations within in his/her industry and geographical location. You can use the databases to identify potential employers or internship sites. Use the databases below to search for companies and organizations based on your location preferences (e.g., New York, New Jersey, etc.) and industry of interest (e.g., education) and organization type (e.g., government, non-profit, etc.). 

Note to Alumni

Due to licensing issues, only current students, faculty, and staff have remote access to library databases. However, alumni are welcome to visit any of our four library locations to use electronic resources on-site. Resources available to alumni remotely are available here.
