Over the years, in order to help our clients clarify their goals and uncover potential hiring opportunities, Career Horizons has researched, built, and maintained a large number of target company lists related to key industries within Washington State.  These current lists, for example, include detailed breakdowns of local companies in the Biotechnology, Consumer Products, and Telecommunications/Wireless sectors, in addition to hundreds of companies who are in “Start-Up” mode or who have been voted to be a “Best Company to Work For” by one or more local publications.
