By now, it's old news that millennials insist on having
lives outside of the office, no matter the career paths
they choose. "Work-life balance" is a hot topic these
days, with employers dangling the phrase over potential hires
at every stage of the recruitment process. With all the talk of
flexible schedules and flip-flops at the office, we can't really
blame your parents for thinking your generation has been,
well, coddled a bit.
But for whatever reason, no one's talking about how
current students also want to make a difference with their
professional lives-millennials' aspirations aren't just about
having time to catch a movie or hit up happy hour with
friends after work.
Yes, striking a work-life balance remains students' number-
one career goal. But survey respondents also cited the
importance of being dedicated to a cause, feeling secure in
their positions, and being intellectually challenged.

But for
whatever
reason, no
one's talking
about how
current

want to make
a difference
with their
professional
lives

Let's be honest: Choosing an
employer is the true culmination of
the college experience. It all comes
down to this big decision. So we'd
like to offer you our help to ensure
you'll pick a job that will keep you
engaged-and allow you to have a
personal life, too.
On the following pages, we talked
with employers to get the inside scoop
on what it's really like to work for
them. Want to know what goes on
inside the National Security Agency?
Or what it takes to get Campbell's
Soup on the shelves? Those answers
and more-direct from the mouths of
some of 2oo8's top employers-await
you. -SARAH BAICKER
