LAWhat would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail?” – Robert Schuller

Sociology was never really my thing, but I do like to study people in the workplace. What makes some people successful and some failures? What allows some people to climb to the highest levels, only to tumble. There are those who will never be satisfied until they are CEO and others who are content to work in the mail room their entire careers.

The same is true for companies, those that endure no matter how difficult the times, those that crash and burn and those that survive but will always be second rate. Being a “most admired company” does not guarantee long term success but it is certainly one of the required ingredients to ensuring long term success. Finding your job is much the same, although it might be hard to find the connection. So, in Robert Schuller’s words, “What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail”? Only one way to find out.

  • Air France-KLM Group – We all know what Air France does. Their Career Site (the US version) is fairly simple with a brief overview in the center of the page followed by a listing of jobs. Not much of a career site, but worth a quick look if you are looking for a job in the Airlines industry.
  • Air Products & Chemicals -This company, according to their website “serves customers in industrial, energy, technology and healthcare markets worldwide with a unique portfolio of atmospheric gases, process and specialty gases, performance materials, and equipment and services”.

  • Airgas – Airgas is the largest U.S. distributor of industrial, medical, and specialty gases and related hardgood (according to their website).

  • Alcoa – Located in 34 countries around the world, Alcoa’s main business is the production of aluminum.

For the US, there were 24 job opportunities when I checked the site.
  • Allianz – Allianz’s main businesses are Insurance, Asset Management and Banking. They have over 180,000 employees spread over 70 countries. Their career site provides links to search for jobs and company information on the left-hand side with additional links on the bottom for job profiles and entry programs. Center page has a map of the world where you can click on employees around the world to hear what they say about the company.
