Here is where Americans most want to work.
More Americans are re-entering the workforce, while other are searching for the next rung on the career ladder. So where do they dream of landing fo thier next job?
It turns out that many people are focusing their job hunt on a diverse group of companies that, despite their differences, tend to share certain traits, such as s strong brand and the sense of purpose employees derive from wokring there.
That’s accoridng to a new study fro mcareer site Indde.com which surveyed which companies among the Fortune 500 had the gihest “click-through” rates on their online job ads. While the list names some of the usual suspects — such as Apple, the most valuable company in the world, as well as the most valuable global brand — it also includes several older companies with roots in the industiral era, such as railway Norfolk Southern. Job seekers are also sarching for a variety of jobs, from entry-level positions that don’;t require college degrees to more highly skilled roles such as software engineers.
They are very different companies, ranging from an insurance company to an internet vompany to travel companies, said Paul Wolfe, head of HR for Indeed.com What is improtant is that they have a compelling story that they are telling about their company, the culture of the company, how people are treated and what current employees think
surprisingly, the most popular open positions at tech companies such as Apple and Amazon.com aren’t all tech-realted posts. At apple, the most popular job ads included receptionsits, while one of Amazon’s most popular opening was for warehouse workers.
It show the spectrum of jobs that companies like Apple and Amazon are seeking to fill, Wolfe said, as well as the wide range of skills that Americans possess. Only one of three americans holds a college degree, which is necessary for higher-paying, professional occupations such as engineering.
