Admired – “to regard with admiration” (according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary), and that is the basis for the companies on Fortune’s list. Many people think of a job search as looking for a company that wants them or looking for a job that fits them. But what about looking for the company that fits your criteria? Why not take the approach that you will not just work for anyone, but only for companies that fit your criteria? So as you build the criteria for the companies that you want on your list, how will you rank them? For a start, you may want to look at the Hay Group’s page on how they helped Fortune rank the most admired companies (click here).

  • Abbott Laboratories – Ranked 3rd in Pharmaceuticals, Abbott’s career site is very well done. At the top of the page are links for Internships, Benefits, Professional Development and more. This is followed by a brief overview and then links to “why you should work there” and then information on locations. The left hand side of the page has additional links Search Jobs world wide. The right hand side of the page has links for featured jobs, Meet Our People and Recruiting Events. You must search for jobs by country (which you can select from the Jobs World Wide link).
  • Adecco – A temp help company, Adecco is ranked 4th in it’s field. Job search at Adecco is interesting, because that’s what they do for a living. Their Job Seekers page is well done, with a job search bar at the top of the page where you can enter the job title followed by the location. The left hand side of the screen has Apply Now, Job Categories and more. Center page is a brief overview of the company. There were over 3,072 job opportunities when I checked the site.
  • Adobe – Adobe is a software company and is ranked 2nd in their industry. Their career page leads with their “Best Company” awards (also on Canada’s Top Employers list). There is detail on Culture and Benefits, Locations, Company Profile and University Recruiting. Adobe also has a Consulting practice as a career choice (with a link on the main career page). You can register on the site and create a profile and post your resume. You can also search for job opportunities (95 were listed across all locations when I checked the site) without registering.

  • Aetna – Health Care and Insurance Company Aetna was ranked #1 in it’s industry. Their career page (another well done page) has an overview center page followed by sections for Experienced Hires and Students and Recent Grads. There are quite a few related links bottom center page. There are a number of useful links on the left hand side of the page with links to a number of career related links (such as how to apply, student programs and more).
  • Aflac – Ranked 1st in their field, this insurer is based in Georgia and has almost 4,500 employees. Their career site is divided between Sales Opportunities and Corporate Employment. The Sales Opportunities has a link “Becoming an independent agent” as well as a link to Hispanic Recruitment. For Sales Opportunities you must call the number provided. The Corporate Employment link to their non-sales career center has a number of links including Job Search, College Recuriting, Recruiting events background on the company and more. From Job Search you can create a profile, save searches, manage your job submissions, register and, of course, search jobs. A quick search returned 31 job opportunities.

Good luck in you search.
