When I was in elementary school, Christopher Columbus was a hero. Today people don’t even complain about going to work on a holiday named after him. That tells you just how ugly the true story is. Still, you have to give Columbus credit for sailing across the Atlantic with no idea where he was going (and making it back, and then doing it again three more times). Today we have technology that enables us to always know where we are. Rand McNally is a Skokie, IL based company that played a big part in getting us to this point. They were founded in 1856, and since then they’ve been specializing “in maps, navigation, road travel, and trip planning.”
Rand McNally used to be THE name when it came to navigation and mapping. They still have amazing brand recognition, but the competition is far fiercer with smartphones and Google Maps. While Rand McNally may no longer be the place you go when you need to find your way from point A to point B, they still have a wide range of products that help people find their way. These include Fleet Management Systems, Mileage and Routing Tools, Road Atlases, and a wide array of GPS offerings. Rand McNally also still has a significant education business. If you love maps and geography, take a look at Rand McNally’s Careers page. Right now they have a few positions worth checking out including Category Analyst, Full Stack Web Developer, Software Engineer, Technical Customer Service Representative, and UX/UI Designer-Web Developer.
