Technical recruiters today are in fierce competition for top engineering candidates. At the same time, thousands of students graduate from computer science undergraduate programs each year who struggle to land an interview, despite having the skills needed to succeed on the job.
Why is this happening? Because recruiters often target only those candidates who come from name-brand schools—even though over 94 percent of computer science degrees granted every year are not from these “top-tier” programs. It’s time for recruiters to open up their applicant pool to more diverse new grad talent.
This report presents our ranking of the 50 colleges and universities with the highest concentration of students who received a top score on CodeSignal’s General Coding Framework, the industry-standard skills evaluation taken by more than 50% of graduating computer science students in the US.
We hope that this report will help recruiters and hiring managers find top early career developer talent using fair and objective recruiting practices to measure candidate skill.
