How to Find Fast Growing Companies near Where You Live

There is a plethora of articles advocating ambitious young people to join fast growing start ups to accelerate their careers. Here is a great example from the muse. One thing that always bothered me is how hard it was to find these companies, especially near where you live. I think I've found the most simple and straightforward way to do it. I must warn you, this does require a LinkedIn Sales Navigator license, but it could save you a lot of time. It's at least worth a free trial.

1. Use a website like this one to figure out all the zip codes that would be in the area you'd be willing to work. For example, if you don't want to commute more than 30 minutes, you should find all the zip codes within a 30 minute drive.

2. Log into Sales Navigator, hit the magnified class at the top, then select accounts on the left hand side. 

3. Select the region drop down and pick by zip code. 

4. Add the zip codes you'd be willing to work in, separated by commas

5. Then scroll down to the company growth slider and put it to your preferred %, my recommendation is 20% and up.

You'll now have a list of fast growing companies where you live. You can add other filters like company size, or industry to narrow down even further. 

I hope this helps you find the kind of companies you're looking for, best of luck!
