If the bad weather in Rochester is keeping you in the house today, don’t let that stop you from continuing your job search. Spend the day researching companies and gathering information that will help you target your search or find new job leads.
Local economic development organizations deal with businesses everyday and their websites are a great resource to learn about any companies that are growing or moving to the area. Here are two highlights:
COMIDA (County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency) sends out press releases every month with a list of businesses that received assistance through the organization. Often times these companies are required to grow/add new jobs as a result of the assistance they receive from COMIDA.
Greater Rochester Enterprise also offers some great info on their website including lists of the top companies and industries in the area. GRE also just released their quarterly newsletter which spotlights growing companies.
