Launching your career? Try Intel

September 4th, 2009

Business Week just released a report on  the ‘Best Places to Launch a Career in 2009‘ – Intel is ranked #20, up from #38 in 2008.  They used the following methodology to determine rankings:

First, we surveyed career services directors at U.S. colleges to learn which employers were tops on their lists. We asked those employers to complete a survey on their hiring, pay, benefits, and training programs, which we then compared with others in the same industry.  Finally, we obtained from Universum USA, a Philadelphia research company, the results of its 2009 survey of more than 60,000 U.S. undergraduates, who were asked to identify their five most desirable employers.  The employer survey counts for 50% of the final ranking, while the career services and student surveys count for 25% each.

I’ve been at Intel for 10 years and have had a variety of jobs while here – my current role being by far my most rewarding.  If you’d like to find out more about the company that pays my salary, you can follow our jobs organization on Twitter, or check out our careers site.  Business Week also has some good profile data.  Yes – it’s true – all of us sit in cubes, so if you’re seeking that big corner office overlooking the Silicon Valley, look elsewhere…even Andy Grove had a cube.
