Highlight of the week (HOW)! - Catch your biggest stories here.

Should this come as a surprise? Your guess is as good as mine, no. Google, which has over 90% search engine market share in the world today was ranked as the World’s most attractive employer 2019 by Universum followed by EY (Ernst & Young), PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers), Deloitte and Apple. The giant tech company received 3.3 million job applications in 2019, an 18% increase from 2018. 

According to a report released by CNN, Google and Alphabet (the parent company) had 103,549 employees in the first quarter of 2019. With over 70 offices in over 50 countries around the world, Google has one of the best employability opportunities which attracts massive applications from job seekers. 

Just like Google, different companies receive huge numbers of job applications, some trying their luck for future openings while most of them are applying to actual job openings advertised. 

That said, let’s do a 3-minute activity. Close your eyes and picture your dream company to work for. Which one is it and why? Share with us in the comment section below, maybe we can surprise you with a company visit 😉.
