They're All Hiring -- And in IT

Susan Hall

In a slideshow, presents 20 companies with at least 200 openings each. They represent more than 60,000 job openings total, which provides some balm to news of a sputtering job market in the May labor statistics.


Of the 20 companies, only four - Northrop Grumman, Intel, Cisco and Microsoft - are actually tech companies. But most of the rest also have IT openings. Twelve of the companies mention tech openings, though two - Lowe's and American Express - do not, but list tech job openings on LinkedIn. (What a great way to search!) I reported previously that Lowe's was beefing up its IT ranks by hiring 300, including 150 new positions. The other two companies - Prudential Financial and New York Life Insurance - have IT openings listed on their websites.


Here are the other 12:

  • Sears Holdings (includes Kmart)
  • HCA
  • Bank of America
  • UnitedHealth Group
  • Target
  • Exxon Mobil
  • Liberty Mutual Insurance
  • DuPont
  • MetLife
  • PepsiCo
  • Abbott Laboratories
  • Medco Health Solutions


The slideshow offers tips for getting hired from each of the companies. The most common one is so obvious: Learn as much as you can about the company. After all, if the goal, for both of you, is for your skills to help solve the company's problems, you'd better know what they are going in.
