Students want jobs at Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson is the employer of choice among young Swedes, according to an annual study of university students.

Universum Communication’s study revealed that Sony Ericsson is a particularly attractive future employer for students in four sectors: Economics, Technology, Computing and Engineering.

Given a selection of top companies, many prospective engineers, IT geeks and computing students expressed an interest for working for Sony Ericsson. For students looking to work in the IT-sector it was the second most attractive employer, just behind Ericsson and in front of Microsoft.

Engineers apparently favour IKEA, Volvo Car Corporation, Ericsson and then Sony Ericsson. Technology students look to be aiming for Ericsson, Volvo, ABB with Sony Ericsson kicking Saab Ericson Space back into fifth place.

“It’s very rare that a new company proves to be so popular in so many groups,” said Martin Strömqvist, Managing director of Universum.

“We’re impressed, but not surprised: Sony Ericsson is associated with innovative products and is an international company. It also has a relatively young workforce.”

Sony Ericsson Sverige’s head of personnel in Sweden, Krister Jönsson, was proud the company ranked so highly amongst students. “It shows we’re an attractive employer,” Jönsson said.
