The University of Pittsburgh has been named among the best employers for new graduates by Forbes. 

In its 2021 list of America’s Best Employers for New Graduates, Pitt ranked No. 9 among education employers — ahead of colleges such as Harvard University, the University of Michigan and Johns Hopkins University — and No. 89 overall among businesses with at least 1,000 employees.

The rankings were based on a survey of 20,000 Americans with less than 10 years’ professional experience. Respondents ranked their employers based on factors such as opportunities for advancement, compensation, safety and diversity and inclusion efforts. Company image and how likely responders would be to recommend their employer to others were also considered.
