As of July 1, 2019, Naperville Public Library is switching from A to Z Databases to ReferenceUSA. With this change ReferenceUSA becomes your go-to resource for job search. ReferenceUSA is a premier source of business and residential information with more than 40 million businesses, 150 million households across the U.S. and Canada, and 270 million consumers listed.
Job seekers can use ReferenceUSA to create targeted lists of companies with the executive leadership included. If you are looking to change cities use the geography section to create a curated list, try using zip codes or metro areas as limiters. For those who are looking only for a specific industry, use the business type field and NAICS codes to find more companies in that profession.
Once you have put together your targeted list, about 75-150 companies, export the data into Excel. Be sure to include the executive information fields as that will give you more details about the company leadership.
Looking for more details about using ReferenceUSA check out these helpful slides or schedule a one on one appointment with a member of the Business Team! You can access ReferenceUSA under the Resources and Services menu on the library website from home using your Naperville Library card or at any of our three library buildings.
