College student's favorite companies to work with

Google, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, and Apple are the four business institutions chosen by graduates from different countries.
Each year Universum publishes the world's most attractive employers (WMAE) list with the most attractive companies to work with, chosen by university students from 12 countries. 

In total, more than 290,000 students have been surveyed of business, engineering and informatics from Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States, who asked about the Characteristics that should have the ideal employer and which company would be the favorite to work on it.

Thus, the list reveals that the favorite companies of the students to work with are Google, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, and Apple. They continue completing the top 10 positions Ernst & Young, PwC, Deloitte, Microsoft, L'Oreal, KPMG and J.P. Morgan. Among the 50 companies that make the list are also Adidas, Coca-Cola, Sony, IKEA, Amazon, Nestlé, Facebook, Heineken, Ford, Toyota or Samsung, among others.

Type and size of the company

Business career students prefer to work in management and consultancy, banking, finance, auditing and media and advertising companies. In turn, students of engineering and informatics choose Software companies, multimedia development, and digital entertainment, followed by industrial engineering, aerospace engineering, automotive and energy. 

In addition, the study reveals that students do not want to work in multinational. The type of companies they prefer is medium-sized, between 100 and 500 employees, followed by large companies composed of 500-1,000 employees. Nor do they go about creating their own business, working for a start-up or for government institutions. On the contrary, they prefer international, private organizations or continue to study.

The importance of social networks

When it comes to contacting the labor market, most students do so through social networks, followed by the websites of the employer companies and the employment fairs. From Universum point out that social networks should be used to create relationships and contact the talent of institutions. As for employment fairs, they are a good opportunity for companies to make known their brand and know the competition while attracting potential candidates.

The balance between personal and work life

With regard to what the future workers of the companies expect, in most cases, they will have a good balance between professional life and personal life. It is also important to have a steady job, lead a team of people, have an international career, feel that you work for a good cause or be competitive.

Salary and workspace, fundamental keys

As for the preferences of the students in their future work, they emphasize the salary, a space of creative and innovative work, opportunity of professional development or the job security. The students of engineering and informatics give more importance to the innovation than the students of businessmen, who for their part prefer to have the leaders who support them in their professional development.

Thus, the companies that the students believe that favor a creative and innovative environment are Google, Apple, or Facebook, while those that expect that they will generate a higher salary are Goldman Sachs, McKinsey & Company or J.P. Morgan.
