When searching for jobs, you want to find the best company to work for. Well, Great Places To Work have just made things a little easier, with their annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, although whether they’re hiring is another story.

  • The mag compiled their list using a variety of employee surveys, from over 870,000 workers.
  • Employees weighed in on things like how trustworthy, caring and fair a company is in times of crisis, as well as employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s community impact.
  • Topping the list again this year is Cisco, which earns a 96% rating, and gets props for caring about employees’ mental health.
  • They’ve been offering employees free counseling sessions for more than 20 years, plus they also increased digital therapy options, and now offer employees a “Day For Me,” which gives employees an additional day off for self-care.

Let’s say you don’t want to focus on finding employment with a certain employer, we recently released the best and worst entry level jobs! 

Another class of college seniors will be graduating in just a couple of weeks and entering the workforce, with many likely taking entry-level jobs in order to work their way up to their dream gig. But the truth is, not all entry-level jobs are equal. While some have great starting salaries, others pay you next to nothing, and while others will give you plenty of responsibility, some may just have you pushing papers.

So, what are the best entry-level jobs out there?

WalletHub set out to discover just that, comparing 108 entry-level positions based on 12 key metrics in three general areas: Immediate Opportunity, Growth Potential, and Job Hazards. Facts include average starting salary, projected job growth by 2030, median tenure with the employer, and more. Topping the list is a Software engineer, which earns a total score of 81.07 out of 100, landing at seven for an immediate opportunity. In fact, Engineers, in general, seem to be a good career move, with eight of the Top Ten spots going to some sort of engineering position. Electronics Engineer, second overall, is tops for an immediate opportunity. Patent Attorney is top for growth potential and Policy Processing Clerk is tops for job hazards.
