SPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT UNIVERSUM TOP 100 U.S. 2014 | 03 F or the past 25 years, Universum has been committed to helping employers and young talent find the right match – and this year is no different. With the help of Universum's university and strategic partners, nearly 50,000 undergraduate students and MBA candidates took the Univer- sum Student Survey and shared what they value in their careers – from their long-term goals to their expectations for their first jobs, from where they want to work to their preferred communi- cation methods, and everything in between. We are pleased to share the results with you in this publication. e Top 100 Ideal Employer Rankings on pages 6-8 provide a look into the minds of the emerging workforce: What com- panies and industries are most in demand, and what do these students hope the future of work will look like? ese rankings are a testament to the employers that are listening to the needs of the emerging workforce, and making changes to suit these needs. Even more interesting than the rankings themselves is the "why" behind these numbers. On pages 15-34, you have the opportunity to get to know these companies a little better, through the stories of people with first-hand experience – the people who work at these organizations every day. Each of the employees featured in this publication has a different perspective and a unique story to tell – and for students who have not experienced the world of work yet, these stories can provide context around what the day-to-day reality is like at these companies. We hope you enjoy reading about the experiences of these employees, and we look forward to continuing to connect today's students with their futures. We thank the students, universities, and employers who partner with us each year to shape the future of the workforce!

Undergraduates and MBAs tell us what they want from their future employers. As students think about their future careers, what can they do to impress employers? Does the desire for work/ life balance really mean a desire to work less? Thank you to our employer, university, and student partners for giving a voice to the future workforce. "Each of the employees featured in this publication has a different perspective and a unique story to tell."
