I don’t read a lot of magazines. Why be forced to read a certain set of articles when you can have the Internet bring you only the best? I make an exception for a few magazines, and Inc. is one of them. It’s a fantastic resource for small business owners, and it also has to be the best magazine for job seekers out there. That may seem surprising considering that Inc. doesn’t typically focus on career issues, but when you look at their content, you’ll see why. The Inc. 5000, the magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest growing privately held companies in the country, is my undisputed favorite resource for finding exciting, under the radar companies that might be hiring. I’m also a big fan of their annual feature on America’s Coolest Internships. Since I find Inc. so helpful for job seekers, I logically wondered whether Inc., which is based in New York City, has any jobs. The answer isn’t clear, but we’ll use this post to help you walk through what to do when a company that you want to work for doesn’t appear to be hiring.
Usually I’d tell you more about Inc., but I think you can figure it out for yourself. Go grab their latest issue or browse around Inc.com. You’ll get a feel for who they are and what they’re about pretty quickly. So what about jobs with Inc? They don’t have a Careers page. There’s nothing on their About page. Nothing on their Contact page either. Even being a Google Ninja (here’s my article on using Google for the job search) doesn’t turn up anything helpful. Maybe it’s on purpose. Maybe Inc. isn’t hiring, and they don’t want to be bothered by lots of applicants. But if you really want to work for a company, you shouldn’t give up that easily. Try looking for the company’s LinkedIn profile—here’s Inc.’s LinkedIn Company Profile. It may not have job postings, but it will tell you exactly what you want to know—what kind of positions the company has and how much experience it takes to get a given position. It will also enable you to reach out to people who may be able to help you find information on job opportunities. You can take this kind of networking to other sites, but it’s hard to beat LinkedIn for this kind of stuff.
You should also note that Inc. has a parent company named Mansueto Ventures (which also owns Fast Company). Mansueto Ventures does have a Careers page, and it includes this e-mail address for inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can try reaching out there too. I can’t promise any jobs, but if you want to work at a magazine that seems to keep its job opportunities secret and you can’t network your way in, this is the way to go.
