10. General Electric

Projected entry-level hires: 1,600

The best way to get hired at the conglomerate (also the parent company of CNBC.com) is through an internship, since much of the recruiting for full time jobs is done from that pool of candidates, as well as from about 40 colleges, says Steven Canale, manager of global recruiting at GE. Some entry-level hires are placed into leadership programs in the information technology, engineering, operations and finance fields.
