Investment bank Goldman Sachs is one of the top providers of graduate jobs, it has been claimed.
Writing for the Times, Martin Birchall explains that the firm is one of the few financial intuitions to actually increase its profits in the wake of last year's credit crunch.
Goldman Sachs employs more than 30,000 staff across offices based all over the world, he points out.
"The bank is planning to hire about 250 new analysts in 2009, a very similar number to this year's intake," Mr Birchall says.
It will be looking to appoint people to graduate jobs across all the ten main areas it operates in, he adds.
These include, global investment research, merchant banking and private equity, technology and investment banking, Mr Birchall states.

The school's head told the Guardian this was done because of a shortage of skilled individuals.
