San Donato Milanese (Milan), 20 February 2012 – For the second year running, Eni has been recognised as the company most preferred by Italian graduates inthe Employer of Choice Survey 2011. The survey ranks the preferred employers of those who are looking to enter the working world immediately after obtaining their degree.
The survey, which is promoted by Emblema – a consulting firm involved in the field of university placement and corporate recruiting – was conducted with a sample of 22,827 graduates and undergraduates of 71 Italian universities (average age of 24.2 years, average exam mark 27.4/30 and average graduation mark 102.7/110) who stated their preferences during the third Virtual Fair event, held online last December.
The keywords characterising the ideal enterprise they want to work for are: professional growth, training and international opportunities. This demonstrates once again that new graduates are looking for concrete possibilities which can turn their first job into a springboard towards a stimulating career.
The ranking also revealed that they pay special attention to work-life balance, company values and that most of them prefer an informal and young working environment, proving that even personal life and human relationships are important elements when making their choice.
The survey has recognised that Eni has the ability to offer young people stimulating professional opportunities, financial stability, international training, awareness of sustainable development issues, people development, growth and wellbeing of the surrounding community, respect for the environment and ongoing investment into technological innovation. The cooperation and multicultural nature of Eni give rise to teamwork characterised by exchanges and mobility at an international level.
Young graduates have shown that they appreciate the chance to work at an Italian company with an excellent reputation around the world, which rewards merit and provides opportunities to grasp the challenges of the global energy market.
