Most attractive employers for graduates in Ireland 2015

Stephen O'Brien 26.05.2015

A recent study into the top 10 companies ranked by engineering and I.T. students has shown some interesting results.

As a recruiter I speak to a lot of people who are looking for that all elusive perfect job. I ask them what they look for in potential employers and what attributes they look for in a company. The organisation Universum recently surveyed a total of 8,500 Irish degree-level students and asked them who their ideal employer would be.

They results are quite interesting. They show a lot of popularity towards the large American-owned technology companies which is no surprise. The top 10 companies ranked by engineering and I.T students are as follows:

  1. Google
  2. Apple
  3. Microsoft
  4. Facebook
  5. Intel
  6. Boston Scientific
  7. Samsung
  8. Twitter
  9. Amazon
  10. IBM
