The Australian Financial Review’s list of Top 100 Graduate Employers
, produced in association with graduate employment website GradConnection, has revealed where our nation’s new graduates want to work.
Deloitte was the most popular choice, with 18% of graduates expressing a preference to work at the company.
The rapidly rising star was ALDI, which jumped to fifth place on this year’s list, up from 37th last year. It was selected by 11% of graduates as a place they would like to work.
Fellow retailers Woolworths and Coles trailed behind ALDI at no.15 and no.27 respectively (with 5% and 4% of the popularity vote).
The Top 100 Graduate Employers list is created from the 37,497 graduates who are logged-in users of the GradConnection website.
The ranking is calculated from the number of graduates who expressed interest in applying for a graduate job with a particular employer over the 12-month period to October 2016.
Only employers who have advertised positions through GradConnection are included in the ranking for the Top 100 Graduuate Employers.
Two Australian drinks companies made the list, Coca-Cola Amatil at no.47 and Diageo at no.100.
“We’re delighted to feature in the Australian Financial Review’s List of Top 100 Graduate Employers as the highest-ranked beverages company,” CCA noted. “And with Diageo also making the list this year, we’re in good company.”
