Google is the mother of all employers

Consider this little fact. In 2006, Google received over 1.1 million resumes.

Talk about resume overload! A new survey reveals that Google is the most ideal employer among today's undergrad college students.

The popular online search engine Google edges out Walt Disney as the No. 1 IDEAL (TM) Employer for Undergraduate students, the 2007 Universum IDEAL (TM) Employer Survey
reveals. Google also ranks in the top 10 of nearly all industry specific rankings including business, consumer goods and engineering.

A record 44,064 Undergraduate students from 184 schools participated in the US Undergraduate Edition of The Universum IDEAL(TM) Employer Survey, making it the largest survey of its kind. In it, students answered questions about their career expectations on topics including top industries, career goals, communication preferences, salary expectations and IDEAL(TM) employers.

In an unanticipated move, The Peace Corps (5) and Teach for America (10) both made strong debuts in this year's rankings, vaulting into the top 10 from unranked positions in previous years. Walt Disney (2), Apple Computer (3), U.S. Department of State (4), Central Intelligence Agency (6), PricewaterhouseCoopers (7), Microsoft (8), and Federal Bureau of Investigation (9) complete the top 10 list of IDEAL (TM) Employers for undergrad students.
