2017 top new grad employers

If you're wondering what Apple wants from new grads, take it straight from the top: "Measure your impact on humanity not in 'likes,' but in the lives you touch." That was the message CEO Tim Cook delivered to MIT's class of 2017 during his recent commencement address.

Technology is capable of great things, but it's the people behind it who really matter, according to Cook. And the kind of people his company hires are perfectionists, idealists and big thinkers. Join Apple, the company says, and help "leave the world better than we found it."

Some of the company's biggest thinking is behind its new headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. Employees have started moving in to the new "Spaceship" campus, whose construction has been overseen by design chief Jonathan Ive. Facilities will boast a 100,000-square-foot fitness and wellness center and a café that can seat 4,000. --T.Z.
