LinkedIn has released this infographic highlighting the World’s Most In-Demand Employers. The data is based on the number of interactions between the companies and 175 million professionals.
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.”
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.
