These days everyone is a job seeker. Whether in a position for five years or five month, everybody is on the lookout for something better and the companies with the most visibility and the greatest reputations for offering fantastic employment experiences – like Google – are on the top of most everyone’s list.

This is a takeaway from a recent report from LinkedIn on the Most Popular Companies for job-seekers in the U.S., based on data the social network pulled on job-seeker behavior over the course of the 12 months ending this past February. According to the numbers, the top companies are all names you likely know. For a look at the top-10, check out our slideshow below.

Topping LinkedIn’s list (which you can view in its entirety here) is Alphabet, a holding company best known for its largest subsidiary, Google. The Mountain View, California-based company is well known to provide great benefits and work environments to its some 72,000 employees, though its hiring interviews have been known to confound.

In second place on LinkedIn’s roster is Amazon, the giant electronic commerce and cloud computing company based in Seattle. The company’s ranks stand at more than 341,400 and there are plans to add 100,000 new full-time jobs in the U.S. over the next 18 months, according to LinkedIn.
