top new grad employers

LeBron James, Cristiano Ronaldo and Rafael Nadal may play different sports, but they have one thing in common -- big endorsement deals with Nike. That star power is a big draw for new grads eager to work at the sportswear giant.

If working for one of the most recognizable brands in sports isn't enough, recruits also enjoy perks like tuition reimbursement, onsite gyms and fitness discounts.

To make the Nike team, new grads should demonstrate a passion for Nike's sport culture and the ability to easily work with others, the company website says. For those still in school, Nike also offers hundreds of internships each year, in areas such as design, supply chain and finance. --A.L.
