"The Google fever is still hot!

Students are attracted by Google's relaxed and creative work environment, international atmosphere and innovative products.

Google offers great benefits and opportunities that are hard for other companies to match," Universum's CEO Petter Nylander said in a statement.

The index which is based on the preferences of over 144,000 career seekers, with a business or engineering background from the world's 12 greatest economies is split into two categories business and engineering.

In the business category, Google has blocked the top rank, followed by KPMG in the second place and Procter & Gamble in the third position.

Also in the engineering category, Google takes the first position for the fourth consecutive year.

"The giants in the software industry are seen as great places for the launch of an engineering or IT career. They offer training, networking and future career possibilities.

Moreover, they are global," Nylander said.
