Today we’re going to continue revisiting the entry level jobs that we’ve covered over the past 14 months. If you missed Part 1 of the series, you can find it here.
NORAD: Tracking Santa would be fun, but NORAD is shrouded in secrecy, so you’ll have a heck of a time finding out how to land a job with them. You can’t just knock on the door of the hidden compound built into the side of Cheyenne Mountain and ask for a job.
23andMe: “Genetics just got personal,” and 23andme is the reason why. They have 7 main business areas – Business Development, Engineering, Finance and Administration, Marketing, Operations, Product, and Science – and they have entry level openings in most of them.
Redfin: The online realtor went through a round of layoffs back in October, so it’s hard to say how serious they are about the positions that they have listed. Still, their Jobs page shows that they’re looking for Contract Field Agents and a Marketing Analyst/Writer.
American Apparel: I keep hearing more and more creepy stuff about American Apparel’s CEO Dov Charney, so if you want to work for them, find the jobs on your own at your own risk.
Martinelli’s: No job openings with this manufacturer of delicious sparkling cider.
Mint: Since we first covered Mint, they’ve grown a lot. They keep making their personal financial management software better, and their jobs still look awesome. They have a new Jobs site that includes opportunities in Web and Software Development as well as an opening for a Community Manager.
AdMob: I see ads from AdMob’s network all over my iPhone apps, so I bet that they’re doing well. They have 20+ job openings listed, and quite a few look like they could be suitable for new grads.
Better World Books: Pickings are slim in terms of jobs at Better World Books right now, but if you’re looking to do good and buy a book at the same time, they’re still the place to go.
Tesla Motors: Tesla continues to make a name for itself as the high-end manufacturer of electric cars. Most of their jobs require significant experience, but there are a few opportunities for new engineering grads.
jetBlue Airways: There are still a ton of jobs at jetBlue, and they’re all over the place (literally and figuratively). Your best bet is to browse their job listings and see what interests you, because there isn’t much consistency from job to job.
BasePoint Analytics: If you want to be a sleuth who uncovers fraud mysteries, then you better e-mail BasePoint Analytics and tell them why they should hire you, because they don’t list job openings on their site.
RapLeaf: Your online reputation is more and more important, and RapLeaf tries to put a number on it. They always seem to be looking for top flight software engineers, and they’re always offering referral bonuses. If you apply for a job with RapLeaf, please tell them that we sent you.
Ask Sunday: I’m not sure whether personal outsourcing will take a hit in a down economy, but don’t set your hopes on working for Ask Sunday. They don’t even have a Jobs page anymore!
The Weather Channel: Ugh! They still have music on their Careers page, and they only have jobs in Sales now. That’s bad news for all of you aspiring weatherpeople.
Apple: There are 26 jobs opportunities on Apple’s list of entry level jobs. Not bad.
Associated Press: It doesn’t look like the AP has anything for new college grads right now. Times are tough in the news industry.
Thrillist: I enjoy getting Thrillist’s Chicago e-mails every day, but they don’t have much in the way of jobs for new grads. Everything is either an internship or requires a decent amount of experience.
Bear Naked: It doesn’t look like Bear Naked has started posting jobs online yet, but you can still send a resume.
Squidoo: Seth Godin probably has his hands full teaching his Alternative MBA class, so I doubt Squidoo is hiring right now.
Freedom-2: Hopefully you heard about Freedom-2 before you got that tattoo. They do have 2 jobs listed on their new Careers page, and the Web Development job looks to be entry level, but it was originally posted in June. Hmmm.
Nanosolar: Apparently solar energy is still a good industry to be in, because Nanosolar is hiring lots of people in their Research and Engineering departments.
Organic Valley: There aren’t as many jobs listed with Organic Valley as there were in the past, but there are quite a few options for new college grads with an agricultural background.
woot!: Woot’s job postings are still hilarious, and they still have some great opportunities for new grads in Web Design, Software Development, and Buying.
Automattic: I love WordPress, and Automattic makes WordPress, so I love them too. They’re looking for Code Wranglers, System Wranglers, and Happiness Engineers. Everyone at Automattic works remotely, but they’re still one of the coolest places to work.
Blackboard: Course management is of new interest to me, as I’ll be teaching an online course soon. However, Blackboard shouldn’t be that interesting to you, because most of their jobs are at the Senior level.
Netflix: There are close to 100 job openings with Netflix right now (maybe their business does better when unemployment goes up), so you should be able to find some interesting entry level listings if you look hard enough.
