Technology companies dominate the upper ranks of LinkedIn's latest list of the most desirable employers. Find out who tops the list.

Technology companies dominate the upper ranks of LinkedIn’s latest list of the most sought-after employers.

Google, Apple and Facebook earned the top three slots, in that order. The largest and smallest of the 100 companies on the list — IBM and Dropbox, respectively — are tech brands as well.

The companies on LinkedIn’s annual list of what it calls the most “InDemand” employers in North America share some important things in common. Wade Burgess, vice president of LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions business, writes in a blog post:

These sought-after companies share a common thread: a powerful employer brand that shows off their people, projects, culture and the community they’ve created around the work they do.

LinkedIn based its rankings on billions of interactions between companies and members of LinkedIn, honoring the firms that more than 129 million LinkedIn members in the U.S. and Canada show the most affinity with. Those include interactions with employers’ company pages, employee profiles and LinkedIn job postings, for example.

As the report on the list puts it:

Rather than relying on questionnaires, InDemand measures the actual behavior of professionals as they explore their career journey.

The top 10 companies on this year’s list, which was released last week during LinkedIn’s annual recruiting event, are:

  • Google
  • Apple
  • Facebook
  • Microsoft
  • Nike
  • Walt Disney Co.
  • Tesla Motors
  • Procter & Gamble
  • Starbucks
  • Shell

The top five sectors most represented by the companies on the list range from technology at No. 1 (with 29 percent) to oil and energy at No. 5 (with 8 percent):

  • Technology
  • Media and entertainment
  • Retail and consumer
  • Health and pharmaceuticals
  • Oil and energy

The universities whose graduates are most commonly hired by the InDemand companies are:

  • University of Washington
  • San Jose State University
  • New York University
  • University of California, Berkeley

Tech companies also dominated Glassdoor’s latest list of the 10 best-paying employers in the country.
