As the Wall Street Journal declared earlier this year, everybody wants to work for Google.
Landing a gig is typically influenced by which school you attend, since networks, geography, and prestige are such powerful predictors in a job hunt.
With that in mind, we took to LinkedIn’s clever new education utility — which sorts through users’ LinkedIn history to find trends — to figure out where you should go to college if you want to end up at the Googleplex.
Here are the rankings of schools with the most alums at Google:
1. Stanford University (1,859 alumni)
2. University of California, Berkeley (1,645 alumni)
3. Carnegie Mellon University (901 alumni)
4. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (763 alumni)
5. University of California, Los Angeles (671 alumni)
6. University of Michigan (585 alumni)
7. Cornell University (537 alumni)
