5 Ways to Vet Your Next Employer
Time to do some detective work
Get to know the top-level executives
Just as your employer will want to understand your professional background, you should understand theirs (or rather, the professional backgrounds of the key players).
Find out who their C-level executives and decision makers are. Learn what you can from LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Google them to see what, if any, articles have been written about them.
