To determine which employers are best for entry-level workers, BusinessWeek uses a three-part methodology. First, we surveyed career services directors at U.S. colleges to learn which employers were tops on their lists. We asked those employers to complete a survey on their hiring, pay, benefits, and training programs, which we then compared with others in the same industry. Finally, we obtained from Universum USA, a Philadelphia research company, the results of its 2009 survey of more than 60,000 U.S. undergraduates, who were asked to identify their five most desirable employers. The employer survey counts for 50% of the final ranking, while the career services and student surveys count for 25% each.
Graduation and life after college is not that far off so I thought I would collect a list of resources for soon to be college graduates. Heading off into the “real world” can be challenging for college graduates. Be sure to take advantage of the resources offered by UNC Charlotte. Even if you are not graduating now, it is a good idea to start thinking about it. Good planning now can save you headaches when you do graduate.
