Our students eye US
By Ria Sharma
LinkedIn has just published its global research on the 10 most popular companies among students. To find out where students want to work, LinkedIn crunched their data and the final results are based on their LinkedIn activity including job search behavior, the companies they follow, and their views of company pages and member profiles.
As expected, the big multinationals top the global list:
What about companies that are beyond the global giants? When we looked at Top 10 lists for mid-sized companies (1000 – 10,000 employees) across different countries, some interesting trends emerged:
- The Boston Consulting Group & Facebook have the most global appeal to students and recent graduates – either of them appear in every Top 10 country list except Brazil.
- Brazil is the only country whose Top 10 list exclusively features domestic companies.
- Students in the United States (US) are more likely to follow entertainment, media and social brands, while students in the United Kingdom are most interested in fashion and retail.
- In India, students focused on companies headquartered in the US – along with IT and tech companies.
