* Note that many or most of the jobs for the US Army and the Army National Guard may require enlistment in that service. The benefits of enlistment include training and, when on active duty, the pay is supplemented with housing, healthcare, insurance, and other benefits. Of course, in time of war, many of the jobs carry great risk. For more US federal government jobs, visit USAJOBS.gov.

These 100 employers are a very small sample of all the active employers in the USA currently.

Many of these employers have locations across the USA (and, often, the world), so they may be in your area, too. Look to see if similar businesses in your location are hiring, too.

Keep the following things in mind as you view the list of employers:

  •   Prepare for Pandemic Interview Questions  

    You must understand how the employer has managed this situation — how their business has changed and how they have protected their employees and customers. Ask them during, or before, the interview.

    You also need to be prepared to answer questions about how you have managed the situation, including if — and how — you have worked remotely. Read Interview Questions in a COVID Pandemic World for more details.

  •   The fastest way to land a new job is through an employee referral   —   not through an online application.

    As you are researching an employer before applying, you may connect with an employee who can refer you for a job.

    That employee referral makes you stand out among the vast crowd of people who apply anonymously. So, leverage your network (LinkedIn is helpful for this). Find people who work at one of these employers IF you want to work for that employer.

  •   Know that having many jobs open may not be a good sign about the employer.  

    Sometimes many jobs open means the employer is growing and expanding which can offer great opportunities.

    Other times, many open jobs may mean they have high turnover because they are not an ideal place to work, pay poorly, or are not well-managed.

    Check LinkedIn to see if any of your connections work for the employer (now or in the past). If you find people, reach out to see if they would be willing to discuss their experience with the employer (informational interviews). You may end up with an employee referral OR a good reason to find a different potential employer.

    Before you waste your time applying for a job, check out the employer’s website and also the employer reviews on sites like Glassdoor.com and Indeed.com.

    Landing, a job you will hate means another job search, too soon.

The Bottom Line:

Hopefully, you see many employers are hiring people and many different jobs are available right now. Try a Google search for “jobs near me,” and you will find jobs from employers who are local to you. To land your new job, read former recruiter Biron Clark’s article about networking during this pandemic, recruiter Ed Han’s article about how hiring is happening NOW, and then dig into LinkedIn to expand your network and to make your expertise more visible to the world. With a good LinkedIn profile, a good network, and some luck, your next job will find you.

Good luck with your job search!
