NEW ORLEANS — BusinessWeek magazine has named Entergy Corporation to its 2009 “Best Places to Launch Your Career.” The magazine compiles an annual listing aimed at college seniors and recent graduates ranking the 50 best opportunities.
“We’re extremely proud of this recognition, ranking us side-by-side with many of the world’s largest and most successful companies,” said J. Wayne Leonard, Entergy’s chairman and chief executive officer.
The magazine noted Entergy has “one of the best retention rates in the ranking.”
The listing is based on surveys of students and career-services directors as well as a questionnaire completed by the company. It is the fourth time BusinessWeek has published the rankings. The magazine’s methodology for compiling the rankings changed in 2009 and resulted in what it called a “tougher competition” than in previous years.
