Information found on a company's website often includes a list of company executives. For example, the "Company Profile" page on the Toyota website has a link to an "Executives" page that provides pictures and profiles of the Chairman of the Board of Directors, President, Vice President, Audit and Supervisory Board Members and others. Some entries also have links to executive social media pages.

Some websites, such as Hoover's, have a company directory and search engine on their websites for locating specific company information. The Hoover website enables one to search for a specific Hoover employee, and also offers company reports online. Some company websites, such as Aetna's, have information on careers within a company and student programs.

Boston College provides an online list of company directories, including the "Business Source Complete," "S&P Capital IQ NetAdvantage," and "Business Insights: Essentials and Gale Business Collection."
