Report: Google Still Top Desired Place To Work

An annual study by Universum ranks Google the top place for young working professionals to work at.

Google Is No. 1 on List Of Desired Employers from the Wall Street Journal reports the study claimed about one in four of new job applicants would prefer to work at Google over any other company. About 25% of the 10,306 surveyed said the ideal work-place for them would be Google.

Apple was followed by Google, with about 14% of the respondents, then Walt Disney with about 9%, U.S. Department o State with about 9%, then Amazon, the FBI, Microsoft, CIA, NASA and the Teach fo America. Here is the chart from the Wall Street Journal.

I believe this is the fifth year in a row that Google topped this Universum survey.

So if you want to work at Google, how do you land a job? Check out the Google Jobs page, follow @googlejobs, review the LinkedIn page and Facebook page.
