Google is the Most InDemand Employer Globally in 2012
Last year, LinkedIn released the Top 100 Most InDemand Employers, a set of rankings of the most sought-after companies on LinkedIn. The report was released in the last quarter of the year so I’m looking forward for their October 2013 report. The previous report shows that Google is the most sought-after or InDemand employer for LinkedIn’s then 175M+ members.
A few interesting insights came out about what makes a desirable employer:
- Tech is hot: Software was the most represented industry on the list, and Google topped several categories including our global rankings.
- A strong consumer brand helps, but isn’t essential: Consumer powerhouses like PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Nike, and Disney ranked highly. But so did leading professional services firms like Deloitte.
- Bigger isn’t necessarily better: Big global brands are well represented, but 50% of the top 100 are under 7,000 employees.
Top Most InDemand Employers: Google, Apple, Microsoft
