Parrish Library’s Featured Database will give you a very brief introduction to the basic features of one of our specialized subscription databases. This time we’re featuring GoinGlobal, founded by Mary Anne Thompson.

Link: http://guides.lib.purdue.edu/az.php?s=71213 is the alphabetical list of the databases specially selected for those in a business program of study. Access the databases off-campus with your Purdue login and password.

Focus: GoinGlobal provides access to country-specific career information such as advice for finding employment opportunities, including business and networking groups, job search resources, cost of living data, and city career guides.

Tutorial: Click here see the basics of using GoinGlobal.

Start with this hint: Access career guides by country, global city, and US city from the homepage; including hiring opportunities, resume and interview help, and networking information.

Why you should know this database: Going Global also has H1B employer petitions from the US Department of Labor by location in the USA/Canada, and additional searches by job title, occupation, employer, wage, and other fields, and country-specific company profiles.
