ATLANTA, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS), an international honor society organization dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship, and community commitment, published today their annual Millennial Career Survey. Millennials are generally classified as those born between 1980 and 1999.
The NSHSS Annual Millennial Career Survey uncovers career choices and workplace preferences of more than 9,000 high school students, college students and young professionals who have been recognized for their academic achievements by the organization. The findings chart the attitudes and preferences of diverse, high-achieving students in the areas of career choices, employers, workplace environment, technology and communications. Each year, the findings are used by companies and organizations to gain better insight into the minds of these millennials.
Students are given a list of 220 companies and asked to rank their top 3 preferences from a list generated from Fortune's Top 100 Companies to Work For from 2012 and 2013; from DiversityInc's list of top 50 companies to work for in 2012 and 2013; and write-in choices. Health-related employers continue to rank highly, indicating an overall priority in careers viewed as socially important and fulfilling. The high ranking of technology companies such as Google and Apple reflects a fascination with rapidly changing technology and devices that millennials enjoy.
