Department of State Ranks High as Ideal Employer for All Undergraduates in 2008

For the third year in a row, the Department of State has placed in the top five ideal employers in an annual poll of undergraduates reported by BusinessWeek. Philadelphia-based Universum Communications announced its 2008 Most Ideal Undergraduate Employer survey results that are based on the responses of over 40,000 undergraduates in the Class of 2008. The Department of State is the highest-ranking Federal agency, listed under first-ranked Google, second-ranked Walt Disney, and third-ranked Apple.

The Universum ranking of ideal employers is based on undergraduates’ selection of their top five picks from the top 100 companies and agencies that were frequently mentioned by students in the previous annual survey.

It is worth noting that out of hundreds of employers, including write-ins, the Department of State ranked first as ideal employer for Liberal Arts undergraduates.
