Universum Communications announced its 2013 “Most Ideal Undergraduate Employer” survey results that are based on the responses of nearly 18,000 undergraduates in the United States. Liberal arts undergraduates saw the Department of State as an ideal employer for the opportunities to do challenging work with a good amount of responsibility. The U.S. Department of State is listed just behind first-ranked Disney and second-ranked United Nations.
