    Millennials Rank Mayo Clinic as Top-20 Most Desired Employer

group of smiling teenagersCareers in health care are on the minds of young people, according to the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) Millennial Career Survey. The majority of the findings, which demonstrate the opinions of 13,000 NSHSS members, point to medicine and health as the most desired field, earning 41 percent of the top votes.

Though Minnesota-based technology and manufacturing company 3M made the No. 1 spot, the health sector commanded a large portion of the survey responses by earning a third of the top 15 positions. Mayo Clinic proved to be popular in the job aspirations of the surveyed millennials, who collectively ranked Mayo as No. 13 from a pool of 200 companies. The results found Mayo Clinic to be even more popular in 2016, moving up a spot from No. 14 in 2015. Forbes reports that the survey, conducted by Hanover Research, demonstrates a reflection of industries’ greater outreach to young people, something 3M has done extensively.

According to the survey, the health care field has been able to make that connection as well. The 2016 NSHSS survey results displayed a maintained interest in health care— with all of the 2015 top-25 health employers holding steady at the top. Institutions including Health Care Service Corp., Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital joined Mayo Clinic as leaders in the survey responses. Local hospitals also earned a place at No. 5.

The high presence of health industries in the rankings is a trend that has maintained during the survey’s nine years.
