For the fifth year in a row, the Department of State has placed in the top ten ideal employers in an annual poll of undergraduates reported by BusinessWeek. Philadelphia-based Universum Communications announced its 2010 Hottest Employer survey results based on the responses of 56,900 undergraduates in the Class of 2010.

The Universum ranking of ideal employers is based on undergraduates’ selection of their top five picks from the top 100 companies and agencies that were frequently mentioned by students in the previous annual survey.

It is worth noting that out of hundreds of employers, including write-ins, the Department of State ranked:

  • second as ideal employer for Liberal Arts undergraduates
  • sixth as ideal employer for all undergraduates
