This is a brilliant idea (one of those where I kick myself for not thinking of it first), Hoover’s has come out with a new service for job seekers where they can get company information (size, revenue, top competitors, etc) specifically tailored for job interviews. How many times have you had a job interview and wanted to do research on the company, but couldn’t find anything? Hopefully, it’s not just the standard business reports repackaged and marketed to job seekers, but we’ll have to see (please comment and let us know your experience if you use this service). I think this could be pretty awesome news for perspective job seekers:
