Recent Grads Want to Work for the Greater Good

An article in Business Week highlights the top companies that recent college graduates want to work at - and some interesting changes in where organizations are falling on that list.

According to the magazine, and to research firm Universum USA, the top three companies that recent grads want to work at are still Google, Walt Disney and Apple, but more grads are looking for careers that allow them make an impact or "serve the greater good." The article states that 16% of students listed government/public service as the ideal industry in which to work, making it the No. 1 pick.

Want to work in government or public service too? Contrary to popular belief, CAPS offers a wide range of resources and programs to students interested in non-profit, public service and government careers. Case in point:
The U.S. State Department will be on campus for an information session this coming Thursday, July 17 from 12:00 - 1:00pm.
This session is open to all students and graduates from UChicago and will take place in Ida Noyes Hall, Second Floor, West Lounge.

More resources on careers in non-profits and government can be found in the Careers in Non-Profits section of our website, and students and alumni are also encouraged to come into CAPS and meet with one of our many staff members who have a background in non-profit work.

Make an appointment by calling (773) 702 - 7040.
