LinkedIn lists the top 25 companies in the marketing and advertising industry in a new report that could be a valuable resource for job seekers.
The report aims to highlight the ‘best workplaces to grow a career’ in 2022.
Companies are chosen based on a methodology that looks at LinkedIn data across seven pillars:
- Ability to advance
- Skills growth
- Company stability
- External opportunity
- Company affinity
- Gender diversity
- Educational background
LinkedIn’s data illustrates the demand for professionals with experience in search engine optimization. Within the top 10, there are three companies where the most notable skills are related to SEO.
In this article I’ll highlight the most relevant data for search marketers, followed by a skimmable list of all the top 25 companies.
Top Companies For People With SEO Skills
LinkedIn’s list of top 25 companies in marketing and advertising includes three that are top employers for SEO-related jobs.
At number two on the list, the most notable skills of workers at Merkle include web analytics, Google Data Studio, and PPC advertising.
Power Digital Marketing, at number six on the list, hires a notable number of search engine optimization specialists.
SEO, Google Analytics, and social media marketing are the most notable skills among employees at Publicis Health, which is number 10 on the list. Search Engine Marketing Analyst is also the most common job title.
As LinkedIn’s report only includes companies with at least 500 employees, this list excludes smaller firms that may be considered top workplaces for SEOs.
