GlassdoorA number of tech and accounting companies took the top spots.

• It’s time for college seniors to start figuring out their plans for next year.

• LinkedIn compiled a list of the companies that grads tend to flock to in 2017.

• Some big name companies like Amazon, Oracle, and EY made the list.

It’s that time of year again.

Most college seniors have embarked on their second semester, which means post-grad plans are getting finalised. But if you’re still looking for a grad-friendly place to apply, LinkedIn compiled a helpful list of the organisations that hired the most recent graduates in 2017.

The list was compiled by taking into account all LinkedIn users who graduated from a US college with a bachelor’s degree in 2017. These members were incorporated in the survey if they added a new company to the experience section of their profile after graduation.

Here’s a list of the nine companies who hired the most members of the class of 2017, according to LinkedIn:
