  • H1databaseGreat for international students
    Provided through the Foreign Labor Certification Data Center, this website lists companies that have applied for work visas for full-time applicants.  Inclusion within this list does not indicate whether the application was successful, but it does indicate that the employer was willing to pursue this course of action for a past applicant and that they may have experience with the visa application process.  Results will download into an Access database.
  • Media-provided employer lists: Newspaper and journal publications will often develop lists based on specific criteria such as best places to work, green employers, etc.  If you are targeting a specific geographic area, these lists can be helpful in learning more about possible employers.
