Work sites often feature exercise facilities, sports teams and even community gardens for employees to enjoy. With offices worldwide and plenty of growth potential, the company offers hires plenty of ways to diversify their careers and sharpen their expertise, says Eddie Stewart, director of university recruiting North America.

What they're looking for: Stress your ability for professional influence, strong communication skills and high ethical standards. Applicants should have something "beyond that summer lifeguard job," Stewart says, to show they're a leader ready to take on challenges.
