By AfterCollege Team on February 20, 2013

Here is the latest list of the most popular employers among the U.S. college population, compiled from 450,000+ requests by college students and recent grads on AfterCollege. These are the most popular employers where students want to work, based on our Employer Popularity Index (EPI), the largest and most transparent measure of student employer demand in the U.S.

Why the EPI is cool
The EPI is a live dashboard of student demand based on students who follow companies on AfterCollege and most importantly, based on students typing in names of the companies they want to hear about. So these aren’t necessarily employers that advertise their entry-level jobs and internships on AfterCollege. They’re employers who’ve been entered directly by college students and grads based on their own perceptions and preferences.
