Clark School 3rd Nationwide in Recruiter Survey

The Wall Street Journal has just published its first "Top 25 Recruiter Picks" listing, which identifies those universities from which large employers most heavily recruit graduates to fill entry-level jobs. In that survey the University of Maryland is ranked 8th in the nation, and the A. James Clark School of Engineering is ranked 3rd among engineering programs (behind Georgia Tech and Purdue).

"This is outstanding news for our students," stated Dean Darryll Pines. "In a tough job market, they can be assured that major employers will be looking for new hires at the Clark School."

According to the Journal, the survey queried 479 of the largest public and private companies, nonprofits and government agencies in the U.S. Further, "The Journal research represents a systematic effort to assess colleges by surveying employers' recruiters—who decide where to seek out new hires—instead of relying primarily on measures such as student test scores, college admission rates or graduates' starting salaries. As a group, the survey participants hired more than 43,000 new graduates in the past year."
