Students' Choice Awards

We select award winners in the employer attractiveness category

Students' Choice Awards 2022

The awards were given to companies that are highly regarded by students in Germany for a variety of reasons - as the most attractive employer during their studies or for graduates, as pioneers in equal opportunities or sustainability, for example. The prizes were awarded in a total of eight categories, including a special category that changes annually.

"The Students' Choice Award gives German students a voice. For the third time, we are happy to award the companies that are most attractive to prospective graduates."

Basis for the Students' Choice Awards: Fachkraft 2030

‘Fachkraft 2030“ is a series of representative studies on the economic and general living situation of students and graduates in Germany.

The study was launched in partnership with the Department of Labour Economics at Maastricht University at the start of winter semester 2012/2013. To date, 17 surveys have been completed, with over 300,000 students from all over Germany participating – responding to questions on both recurrent and varied topics.

Data for the study is collected on Jobmensa, a job platform operated by jobvalley with around 13,000 new registrations by students throughout Germany each month.

Dr. Philipp Seegers, Universität Maastricht

"Since 2012, jobvalley and Maastricht University have surveyed more than 350,000 students regarding their study situation and entry into the job market as part of the "Fachkraft 2030" study series. The Students' Choice Award is based on this large database."


The Students' Choice Awards rank employers based exclusively on votes submitted by students who were surveyed as part of the Fachkraft 2030 study. The divergence between the awareness and attractiveness of a company has proven to be a distinctive aspect of the survey methodology.
