Undergrads’ most wanted employers: Apple Inc. #3

Apple Store“Public service or stock price: These were the two features undergraduates overwhelmingly gravitated toward in naming their ideal entry-level employer, according to newly released results of Universum Communications’ 2007 Most Desirable Undergraduate Employer ranking,” Lindsey Gerdes reports for BusinessWeek.

“The top five include two government agencies, the U.S. State Dept. (No. 4) and the Peace Corps (No. 5); two profit- and buzz-generating innovators, Google at No. 1 and Apple at No. 3; and a media conglomerate, Walt Disney at No. 2,” Gerdes reports.

Full article, including a slide show of undergraduates’ top 25 most wanted employers, here.


  1. Check out Apple’s Market Cap! It’s closing in on 100B rapidly!

    It won’t be long before it overtakes 1/3 the size of Microsoft in terms of Market Cap either.. MSFT is very stable at around 295B. Check out the number of employees too! MSFT has over 70M, where as Apple is under 17M, being very light and agile.

  2. Google, Disney, Apple, State Dept and Peace Corps.

    First, fun, fun, fun, then security (Or maybe adventure?), then peace (Advendure, again?).

    If you choose adventure in the last two, then fun, fun, fun, fun, fun.
    What are this things saying?
    Stop the World, I want to go down.

    MDN MW: Very. Interesting.

  3. As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from Nepal, 84-86, I must say I’m pleasantly surprised to see Peace Corps listed as #5 most-desired employer for today’s undergrads. It definitely was “the toughest job you’ll ever love” and a wonderful experience.

  4. M= 1,000

    When I used to by Corrugated Boxes, the supplikers would quote them by the thousand-
    I always wondered why they would use “M: instead of “K”.
