Gap – The most ideal employer for new graduates

May '06
Apparel retailer Gap Inc has been named the most "Ideal Employer" by undergraduates across the country who are interested in pursing careers in retail, fashion and apparel, according to the 2006 Universum Undergraduate Survey.

The Universum study, conducted annually since 1997, polled more than 37,000 students at more than 200 leading colleges and universities across the country. In the survey, participants describe their career expectations and list their most desirable employers. Ranked number 30 overall across all industries, Gap was at the top of this year's survey as the primary choice for the next generation of fashion industry employees.

"Gap is committed to hiring individuals from around the world who are smart, passionate and fit in with our diverse, fast-paced culture that thrives on creativity," said Kate Aiken, Senior Director, college recruiting, Gap.

"For students beginning their careers, a highly-respected consumer brand like Gap is just as important as the company's reputation for how it takes care of its employees," said Tracy Lynn Van Es, VP of Sales & Research, at Universum.

Gap hires top-ranked talent who can demonstrate leadership capabilities. The company offers comprehensive and competitive benefits packages to help its employees and their families stay healthy, meet their financial goals and balance the demands of work and personal life.

In addition, Gap Inc and Gap Foundation dedicate resources to nonprofit organizations around the world that are striving to help underserved women and youths, while strengthening communities. As a result, employees are able to get involved in their communities by receiving paid time off to volunteer, as well as eligibility for a financial match for their donations to nonprofit organizations of their choice.
