Only the Best Employers
Our editorial coverage is 100% focused on the absolute best employers allowing career-oriented applicants to devote 100% of their career search to the employers who are worthy of their investment.
Long-Term | Career Focused
Our main goal is to provide career-oriented applicants with the best information about employers because applicants who make educated decisions are obviously more likely to be a long-term fit.
We offer legitimate editorial which means we do not charge for it and do not have an advertising requirement. Every company placed on our top employer lists has earned the right to be there.
Our goal is to provide applicants with high quality information about the Top Employers in each city, state & industry in order to help them make an educated career decision. Therefore, we focus on employers who share that vision. Our goal is to only cover 1,024 employers nationally and between 32 & 96 in each major market.
We focus our editorial on major employers & prefer that employers have at least 1,000 employees nationwide & at least 250 to 500 employees in the location where we are covering the employer. However, most employers we cover will have at least 10,000 employees.
We focus on publicly traded companies with a market cap greater than $1 billion. We will consider other major companies if they are exceptional & meet our other guidelines.
Major Hospital Systems
We also cover Major Hospital Systems with more than 1,000 employees nationwide & will cover each of the Hospital locations that have at least 250 employees.
Universities, Colleges & Tech Schools
Besides covering the largest educational institutions as major employers, we also cover their educational programs that work with major employers to train students for specific careers.
Dedicated Media Section
We only cover companies who take press coverage seriously & show it by having a dedicated press section on their official site with frequent press releases & high quality images or videos.
Dedicated Career Section
We only cover employers who believe in providing high quality information to applicants so they can make an educated decision. This should be available in a dedicated section on their official site.
We only cover companies who offer applicants a secure way to apply directly with them online through the employer’s official site. So, utilizing a highly recognized ATS, HCM or Ad Agency is also required.
Ad Agency & PR Firm Clients
We trust our partner agencies to properly screen their clients. So, we will give serious editorial consideration for any clients of our approved ad agencies & PR firms.
We are highly focused on technology & will consider upcoming technology companies who have already built a respected brand in their industry and are creating large numbers of high-end career opportunities. Note that this coverage will most likely be in a special editorial section clearly marked as higher risk opportunities & will likely include editorial coverage from the companies themselves discussing these risks & returns.
Even though they are not large cap publicly traded companies, we will still consider editorial coverage of companies who are backed by major VC firms & creating large numbers of high-end career opportunities. Note that this coverage will most likely be in a special editorial section clearly marked as higher risk opportunities & will likely include editorial coverage from the companies themselves discussing these risks & returns.
NOTE: These are guidelines we use to determine the companies we cover. However, meeting these guidelines is no guarantee of editorial coverage. Actually, most of the companies we cover greatly exceed these guidelines. And, out of the thousands of requests & tens of thousands of employers in the United States, our goal is to only cover 1,024 employers nationally and between 32 & 96 in each major market. We also cannot respond to each of the thousands of requests. Thank you for your understanding.
