When you’re looking for a new job, chances are you want to work for a company with a brand you love and a mission you believe in. There are millions of companies around the world, but only a few that rise to the top of your list of dream employers. We want to help you expand that list by leveraging LinkedIn’s massive professional dataset.

So how does this year’s rankings compare to last year’s? Most notably, a strong showing by international companies – 42% of the 2013 Most InDemand employers are located outside the U.S., compared to 32% last year. Here are a few other highlights:

  • Technology and Packaged Consumer Goods companies – like Google and Unilever – dominate the top 10

  • Shell entered the top 10. In fact, 16 Oil & Energy companies made this year’s list, compared to 10 companies last year.

  • Spotify, based in Stockholm, is the smallest company to make this year’s list at #99

  • Amazon broke into the top 10 – they tripled their LinkedIn followers over the past 12 months

To determine these rankings, our data scientists analyzed the actions of 238+ million professionals on LinkedIn. In 2013, LinkedIn was home to more than 25 billion interactions between members and companies.
