Recruiters, Want More Job Orders? Here’s 137,000 of Them

by | Jan 21, 2011 | Recruiter Training, Top Echelon Blog

Every year, Fortune Magazine releases a list of its “100 Best Companies to Work For,” that group of companies that offers the best combination of compensation, perks, fringe benefits, and company culture.  This list, of course, is of great interest to recruiters.  After all, recruiters need to know which companies candidates want to work for the most, and these companies are the ones most likely to attract the A-players within their industry.
These 100 “Best Companies” possess a lot of great aspects and attributes (which is why they were included on Fortune’s list).  However, one of their most appealing attributes is that they’re hiring, and they don’t have just a few openings here and there.  They have a LOT of openings.  In fact, Fortune also recently released a list of 26 of the “Best Companies” that currently have the most openings between them.  How many openings?  Nearly 137,000.  Each one has at least 700 openings right now.

That’s a lot of job orders.

Now, some of these companies rely upon internal recruiters in order to fill their open positions, and enticing quality candidates to apply for these openings probably isn’t much of an issue.  But I thought it would be fun to list the 26 companies and the number of openings they currently have.  Each of the company names listed below is also a link to their online profile on Fortune Magazine’s website.
