The 20 schools with the most alumni at Facebook

Facebook is a great place to work. In fact, it landed the top spot on this year’s Business Insider list of the best companies to work for in America.

Employees are well-paid from the start, with entry level software engineers making $US106,000 a year. The offices feature food, arcade games, and killer art. Plus, Mark Zuckerberg has been rated as America’s most-liked CEO.

So how can you land a job there?

Since networks often lead to jobs, it’s probably a good idea to attend a feeder school like Stanford University, the University of Texas, or the University of California at Berkeley.

It’s also not a bad idea to get your MBA — several business schools have lots of alumni who work for the social media giant.
