Glassdoor.com has a wealth of information for job seekers including company reviews, ratings, salaries, CEO approval ratings, competitors, company-specific interview information, and more details about the companies you might want to work for.  Now, Glassdoor has taken it a step further and integrated job listings and information on companies that are hiring.

Glassdoor has launched JobScopeTM, a new tool that helps job seekers browse job listings and preview what it is really like to work at a company by providing instant, in-depth details about companies directly from each listing. 

Click on the Jobs tab and then search for jobs that meet your criteria.  When you view a job listing, click on "Look Inside" too see a snapshot of the company information.  You'll then be able to decide whether you want to apply and, if so, have insight into the information you'll need to know to write a targeted cover letter and ace a job interview.

"There are almost 15 million Americans competing for an estimated 3 million open jobs, which makes for an incredibly daunting search process. Those looking for employment spend hours wading through listings and researching companies to find jobs that best fit their skill set," said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO of Glassdoor.com. "With JobScope, we've been able to augment job listings with company information, reviews and ratings that cannot be found anywhere else and place it right at our user's fingertips, saving them time and getting them one step closer to their goal: landing the right job."

The more information you have about a company, the better shot you'll have at getting selected for an interview.  Save job search time and search directly on Glassdoor, then spend some time looking through company information to learn as much as you can about the jobs are interested in.

When it comes to job searches, you will definitely have to compete with the others. Nonetheless, you need to keep trying. Just see the list companies who are looking for someone with your skills. Come up with ways to organize your job search and see to it that you keep track of the details needed. That way, you show up for every interview well prepared.
