2. BU Resources of the Week



The JobCrowd Top Companies For Graduate To Work For rankings are unique because they are entirely based on employee feedback: given in thousands of reviews submitted on TheJobCrowd across the year by graduate employees at several hundred graduate employers.

This means that the companies listed are those that actual graduate employees say are the best companies to work for, not just those who might be the best known. These are the companies who are really, truly, the best places to work.

Find out who the best graduate employers really are. Pick up your *FREE Guide from the Careers Centre in the Edge Student Development Centre (outside the library), Talbot Campus.
