Contact human resources to inquire about your interest in applying for their open positions. The human resource department lists available positions for any company. Larger companies have a wider variety of opportunities. Small business owners contract other companies for portions of the business like accounting, marketing, or maintenance. Positions in a company may be either paid or unpaid.


Most businesses need a sales position to operate with efficiency. These positions may be intermittent, or have salaries based on a commission. Company positions in the sales department include retail sales, sales engineers, and financial services sales. A sales manager position requires learning merchandising, customer service, and any basic policies and procedures for the company.


Large companies provide service-learning opportunities for young workers such as internships. These company positions are typically unpaid, except some mid-career opportunities in research, government, or media. Internships typically provide college course credit, or a paid position upon completion of the internship period. Consider an internship if the choice company for employment has no openings. Many companies promote their interns as a means of reducing trainings costs for new employees.


Accounting positions in any company provide administrative support in budget planning and management, payroll activities, sales, and accounts receivable. Most accounting positions are technical in nature and require familiarity with mathematical software. Tax accounting, financial research development, and budget building are higher level administrative tasks for a company's accounts manager.

Human Resources

Small companies, and contractors often combine several duties into a single position. Human resource positions require communication skills, administrative experience, and industry familiarity. Large companies include positions that train and educate employees in their human resource office. Included responsibilities for human resource department positions are managing certification records, employee review records and employee assistance programs.
