Indeed, por vs. para is confusing for most people learning Spanish from English. :)

comment Meaning of “en + infinitive” in “en explorar”
@JackM: Read more here. English has the same construct as Spanish, too--that is to use the infinitive ('to explore'), but has more diversity than Spanish in this regard. In English one can say, for instance, "Swimming is fun" as well as "To swim is fun." In Spanish, only "Nadar es divertido" is accepted and "Nadando es divertido" is non-grammatical.

Note that you work para una empresa, not por una empresa.

comment Does contener have a meaning I'm not familiar with?
Can you provide some additional context? It's hard to know what might have been meant.
