employer popularity indexThe AfterCollege Employer Popularity Index (EPI) is a ranking of the top employers as rated by students in the fields of technology, engineering, business, nursing, allied health, and life sciences.

According to the EPI, some industries, like tech, have held steady for the past three years with Google, Microsoft, and Intel remaining the employers of choice. There has been some change among engineering students, who now also rate Google as a top ten employer. Engineering students’ interest in NASA and IBM has waned, with both of these employers losing their spots in the top ten this year. Google is now the top choice employer for Business students, while in 2014 Wells Fargo lost its spot in the top five to Deloitte. The top five preferred employers for Allied Health students, Kaiser Permanente, CVS, Target, Children’s National Health, and the Mayo Clinic, have held steady for the past three years.
