Top 10 Companies for Hiring - TheStreet


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- As the economy begins to recover. some companies are actually -- perish the thought -- hiring again. TheStreet has compiled a top ten list of publicly-traded companies that are hiring in 2010, based on CollegeGrad.com's survey of top employers.

Hiring is, of course, an indicator of the companies' health -- although the markets typically reward companies that announce job cuts, companies that are hiring are, in fact, exhibiting more solid footing.

Thus we offer this list of the large, publicly traded companies that are hiring entry-level workers, interns and those with master's degrees; what the projections are for this year; and how they compare with figures from the previous years. Some are hiring more workers this year, others are hiring less; nevertheless, they are hiring.

Read on for the companies that are hiring the most workers...
