There’s a common thread among undergraduates studying natural science, maths, and health: They all tend to have the long-term career goal of being dedicated to a cause, says Melissa Bailey, an executive at Universum, a global research and advisory firm.
A new report from Universum supports her observation.
The research firm recently asked 22,976 of these undergraduates to choose the companies and organisations they’d consider working for from a list of 230 options. Next they asked respondents to choose the five employers they most want to work for.
“It’s likely that many of these students strongly associate their top-choice employers with a cause they believe in — in this instance, advancing human health,” says Bailey. “This could be an explanation for why health care services organisations, as well as so many government and public sector organisations, performed so well this year.”
The Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit medical practice and research group based in Rochester, Minnesota, came out on top, as a whopping 20.45% of science, maths, and health undergrads named it their dream employer.
