A key resource for the job seeker is information. Doing research on a company involves finding out as much information as you can to determine if it is a place you would like to work, to prepare for an interview, or when deciding to accept a job offer.

Two very good resources to gain company information are Business Source Premier and Lexis Nexis Academic. These are online resources and are available through UMSL Thomas Jefferson Library (TJL.) A variety of information can be obtained to include recent news articles, company profiles and financial reports. Please see below for brief instructions on accessing Business Source Premier and Lexis Nexis Academic.
