Internet giant Google is the most attractive employer for graduates from the Asia-Pacific region in a list of top companies which figures no Indian firm.

According to global employer branding firm Universum's 2014 Most Attractive Employers in Asia Pacific Ranking, Google has emerged as the most desirable employer among business, as well as engineering and IT students in the APAC region.

Google is followed by Deloitte, Citi, Apple and P&G in the top-five firms for business students. Among engineering and IT students, Google is followed by Apple, Microsoft, Samsung and BMW.

The list has 50 companies each for the two categories, but no India company figures in either of the lists, although a number of these companies have significant headcount in India.

Interestingly, the latest Fortune Global 500 list has eight Indian companies including state-run IOC which was featured in the top 100 at the 96th position.

Besides, Deloitte, the other three major accounting firms were also placed among the Top 10. KPMG was ranked sixth, PwC seventh and Ernst & Young eighth.

The popularity of banks and professional service firms among APAC graduates were also visible in the rankings as these firms took 11 of the top 20 employer positions.

The FMCG sector also had significant presence in the list as the four key players featured include P&G ranked fifth, Unilever 14th, Nestle 16th and the L'Oreal Group 20th.

While Google continues to dominate the rankings as the top employer for engineering/IT students, Samsung is a close competitor in Asia Pacific.

On the other hand, former communications and IT giant, Nokia, continues to fall in the rankings at 32nd place this year.

The survey further revealed that high future earnings' is a top priority across Asia Pacific for both management /commerce students and engineering/natural science students, the report added.
