4. Procter & Gamble

Another FMCG major, Procter & Gamble, ranks fourth among the top five employers with the strongest image.

"This year, the proportion of students expecting an offer of less than Rs 10 lakh (Rs 1 million) has seen a significant decline indicating stronger confidence in the economy and a more buoyant job market," Poddar said.

In terms of companies with the strongest image as an employer, the survey said, "Google has moved up from the second position last year to emerge as the employer with the strongest image."

Factors like growth prospects, the degree of independence take marginal precedence over the salary offered while making a choice, the survey said.

5. McKinsey & Co

Last year's topper, McKinsey however slipped to the fifth place this year. Yet it remains the employer with the fifth strongest image among young job aspirants.

Job content, market standing of the company and the perceived opportunity to learn from top talent are also critical dimensions for students evaluating future employers.

It could be worrying for prospective employees, the survey said more than two third students plan to move out of their first job within four years.

Better career options, better position, and higher pay are the main reasons for moving out of the first job, the survey said.
