What makes it so great? There's a strong focus on team participation at this aerospace and defense firm, which looks for recent engineering and business students who excel as leaders. A leadership training program and networking events are offered to new grads. An average starting salary of more than $50,000 per year and full tuition reimbursement helped lure 3,000 applicants last year. More than half of the new hires in the past five years have been minorities.
