The 2011 Best Employer List of Chinese University Students was released by ChinaHR.com, China's first recruitment website, on June 26, 2011.

The number of foreign enterprises among the top 50 rose from three in 2010 to 10 this year. China's state-owned enterprises dominate the list.

The survey about best employers, covering 200,000 students from 764 national colleges and universities, shows that the number of students who prefer to hunt for a job in Beijing is as high as 10 percent of Chinese university students. This indicates that as the capital of China, Beijing appeals to top talent and is second to none in China.

The survey also found that nearly 70 percent of graduates prefer to find a job in the first-tier cities and in developed areas of eastern China. Beijing's attraction to graduates is obviously higher than Shanghai and Guangzhou.

With the recovery of economy, foreign enterprises and private enterprises are challenging the leading position of state-owned enterprises as the best employers. In 2011, 10 foreign enterprises, including Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Google, Wal-Mart and Apple, edged into the top 50.

In 2010, only 14.5 percent of Chinese university students chose wholly foreign-owned enterprises as their preferred enterprises. However, the ratio has risen to 32 percent this year.

China's state-owned enterprises in the domains of energy, financial and telecommunications occupy a dominant position as best employers. China Mobile took the top position in three consecutive years and the Bank of China has never dropped out of the top five in the past three years.
