The search giant claimed the top spot in LinkedIn’s first-ever release of its Top Attractors list, which includes a ranking of the 40 most sought-after employers in America.
LinkedIn used its extensive data from more than 433 million members to craft the list, which was created using data on job applications, views on companies’ career pages, member engagement and retention of new hires.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, tech companies, known for high growth coupled with lucrative perks (hello, free food!), snagged 45 percent of the top spots in the U.S.
Read below for the full rankings of the top employers:
