Global tech giants and accountants dominate students’ list of ideal employers, with Google and Apple ranked as the best places to work.
The largest and most high-profile tech as well as financial and professional services companies continue to pull in millennials, according to rankings produced by branding agency Universum.
Universum surveyed nearly 300,000 business and engineering/IT students in the world’s largest economies: Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, South Korea, the UK and the US.
Engineering/IT students are predictably more lured towards tech companies than their business counterparts, but the top ranked companies are largely consistent with the aspirations of students in previous years.
This said, millennials are starting to turn away from corporate giants that employ over a thousand people, in preference for medium (up to 500 employees) and large (up to a thousand employees) companies.
