Researching Companies
A good place to start is the Framingham Public Library. Library research can help you identify companies you might want to work for, provide you with information about those companies, give you salary information, give you state-of-the-art information about your field, and help you demonstrate in an interview that you are already knowledgeable about the company. A reference librarian can help you locate this information in books and online.
