American’s Top Employers for New Grads 

Source: Forbes

While most of you aren’t new graduates, many of you will be graduating in 9 months (eek!) and many more will be looking for internships in hopes of securing a full-time job with the organization in the future. With that, Forbes provides a list of top companies for new graduates (new window) by surveying 28,000 Americans with less than 10 years of professional experience working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Participants were asked to rate their employer in areas such as reputation, salary and benefits, education and career advancement opportunities, working hours and atmosphere, quality of work, DEI initiatives, etc. There are 300 employers listed; a few of the top health and sciences employers listed include Mayo Clinic (#4), UCLA Health (#6), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (#12), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (#14), and Boston Children’s Hospital (#20).
