Are you a recent college graduate looking for your first career job?  Your first of out of college helps set a career path for the rest of your life so picking the right company is really important. 

1) Look for a Company With a Career Growth Potential

Most people will not keep the same job for their entire career.  At some point in your career you will likely want a new challenge.  You'll want to find a company that has plenty of room to climb the corporate ladder.

2) Health Insurance for Recent College Graduates

When you are looking for your first job out of college of course money is important.  But you'll also want to look at benefits.  According to the Affordable Care Act all Americans must have healthcare coverage. And if you are now out of college chances are you can no longer stay on your parents health insurance.  Find a company that has health insurance on day one of employment.

3) Find a Company With Multiple Locations

Perhaps you have wanderlust.  Or maybe you will meet your future spouse that is transferred out of state and of course you want to go with them.  Look for companies that have plenty of locations. 

4) Training Provided

Your college degree will get your foot in the door at many companies but once you are there you will find there are many things you did not learn in college that are important to your career.  Look for companies that provide free training to their employees.  You want a company that will invest in you.

5) Competitive Salary and Great Benefits

You've just graduated!  Of course, you are looking for that degree to finally pay off. Look for a company that offers competitive salaries.  You'll also want to look into their benefits.  Be sure to look at both the salary and the benefits when considering your first job out of college.  There are many companies that offer great benefits for recent college graduates.
