Who's hiring young people??
Jan 10th, 2012
A company called Millennial Branding did a survey on how young adults use Facebook to help their career.
--They looked at profiles of 50 million people born between the late 1980s and early 2000s, and according to the results, young adults aren't concerned about keeping their career separate from their personal life.
--The average user had 16 coworkers as Facebook friends, and 696 friends overall.
--But the job information they put on Facebook might not reflect well on their career path. Only 7% work for a Fortune 500 company. The same number work in the travel and hospitality industry.
--The most common job title listed is "server", followed by "manager", "intern" and "sales associate".
--The top employer of young adults, at least according to their Facebook profiles, is the U.S. Armed Forces. 3.2% were in the military.
--That's six times as many as the next largest employer: Walmart. Starbucks, Target, and Best Buy round out the top five.
