Elitism – It’s lonely at the top. But it’s comforting to look down upon everyone at the bottom.” – Larry Kersten

Most of us start out our careers with one goal in mind – working our way to the top. Now we all know that there is only room for one and, should you make it to the top, it can be very lonely. For one, once you’ve reached the top there is only one way to go. On the other hand, there is nothing like calling all of the shots. Of course, the vast majority of us will never make it, but you will never know if you don’t try. Speaking of the top, Fortune’s new list for the Best Companies is out and we get to start from the bottom of the list. Why the bottom you say? To work our way to the top of course.

  • Colgate-Palmolive – On the list at #100, Colgate is known best for toothpaste but they make tons of products that most of us have heard of. Colgate is a true global company, and just about anywhere you live, they are likely to have a location in your company. Their careers page is very well done. Top of the page has tabs for Job Search, Careers, Student Opportunities and more. Center page provides background on “why Colgate” as well as links to the same topics included in the tabs at the top. Click Job Search to get started and either create your profile or simply click “Begin your Search”.
  • Winchester Hospital – Not on the list last year, this community hospital is ranked at 99. They have a basic careers page, with Job Search, opportunities for Physicians and how to apply. Center page has similar links with a brief overview. Clicking on job search revealed 65 job opportunities.
  • Intel -Ranked 98 on this year’s list, is know for computer chips. Their careers page is well put together. The left hand side of the page is filled with relevant links (like Job Search, Intern/Grad Opportunities, a Jobs Blog and so much more). The center of the page starts with a brief overview, followed by a quick Jobs Search box (below which are links for advanced search and recent grad/student searches). Bottom center page has a few targeted searches. The right hand side of the page has an enhanced applicant tool with an additional job search link. There were 1,396 job opportunities when I checked the site.
  • Herman Miller -Office furniture is what Herman Miller is best know for. Ranked 97 on the list, Herman Miller has over 5,100 employees in the US. Their main careers page has a Why Work Here section in middle of the page with additional informational links on the left). There is a “How to Apply” link on the top left or the bottom right side of the page, click this link to bring up the meat of their careers section with “Search Jobs Now” and “Create Your Profile” (if you want to post your resume) links center page. There were 22 job opportunities when I checked the site.
  • LifeBridge Health – Over 6,300 employees and ranked 96 on the list with 262 jobs created last year. Center page of their careers site provides an overview with a “Click here to Search Jobs” located at the top right hand side of the page. There were 270 job opportunities when I checked the site.

Good luck in your search.
