Ireland’s 100 leading graduate employers
The Ireland’s 100 leading graduate employers list is an annual ranking which reveals the most sought-after employers in Ireland published by graduate jobs and careers website GradIreland. The ranking is based on the largest pan-European survey of graduate trends, the ‘European Student Barometer’, which is conducted by Trendence* in collaboration with the Irish Times. The survey reveals the expectations and preferences in their professional position after graduation of 8.000 students from 25 institutions in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
This year’s top 100 is again led by Google, which has also been the #1 in 2014 and 2013.
