9jacampus Ranking of the 10 most Indemand employers for graduates using linkedIn(Nigeria)

Picture yourself walking into your dream job. What logo is on the

door? Whether it's a hot tech start-up or a prestigious global

accounting firm, some employers are more desirable than others. For

companies, this affects how easily they can recruit, and for employees

it's tied to your professional reputation. Using our professional data

set from linkedIn, 9jacampus has identified which companies are most

attractive to potential candidates.

A few interesting insights came out about what makes a desirable employer:

*. Tech is hot: Software was the most represented industry on the

list(linkedIn) and Google top it

*. A strong consumer brand helps, but isn't essential: Consumer

powerhouses like PepsiCo , Coca-Cola , NBA , and Dangote ranked

highly. But so did leading professional services firms like ATI


*Oil and gas, companies are also included, here is where Nigeria's economy lies

*. Bigger isn't necessarily better: Big global Nigerian brands are

well represented, but 40% of the top 10 are under 8,000 employees.

What makes these rankings so unique and exciting to me as a

professional resercher is that they're based on the actual actions of

millions of professionals on LinkedIn. May I remind you that last

year, LinkedIn was home to over 15 billion interactions between

professionals and companies. I cross-referenced my data with thousands

of survey responses to pinpoint the specific activities that best

indicate familiarity and interest in working for a company: connecting

with employees, viewing employee profiles, visiting Company and Career

Pages, and following companies. After crunching this data and

normalizing for things like company size, I developed my top 10 global

list. I then applied LinkedIn profile data to rank the most

sought-after employers among professionals in Nigeria and job


I used a similar analytical framework to develop the 9jacampus Index

improve their evalution
