LinkedIn released a list Wednesday of the 100 most in-demand employers, based on interactions between the more than 175 million professionals and companies on the social network, including how often professionals visit and follow a company’s page.
Tech companies — and particularly software companies — dominated the list. Google ranked highest overall and proved to be the top company for marketing professionals, software engineers and students. Apple and Microsoft ranked second and third on the list, respectively, while Facebook came in fourth. Other tech companies like Salesforce and Twitter ranked among the top 20 companies worldwide.
Interestingly, LinkedIn found that half of the 100 most sought after companies were smaller businesses with fewer than 7,000 employees. As LinkedIn points out in the report, “Bigger isn’t always better.”
The infographic breaks down some of the data by category and region. You can check out the full list of companies on LinkedIn’s website.
