News + Events : Enterprise Rent-A-Car named top 50 places to launch career; Names SF State a key campus for recruiting


For the third consecutive year, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has been named to BusinessWeek’s annual ranking of the best companies for new college graduates to launch their careers.

Enterprise cites the ability to start a career from nearly anywhere in the country, promote-from-within culture, and commitment to sustainability as big winners with college graduates.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized by BusinessWeek for the third consecutive year,” said Marie Artim, the company’s assistant vice president, recruiting. “We’ve worked hard as a company to build and maintain a strong culture of opportunity; and our recruiters work just as hard to communicate that culture to our job candidates and form great relationships with career services professionals at colleges and universities throughout North America. This honor is a real tribute to those efforts.”

At San Francisco State University, Enterprise hires about 30 students each year, and there are 81 alumni from SF State, currently working throughout the Enterprise network of businesses.

Kiran Frush is a local recruiter for Enterprise, and recruits potential employees from SF State. She said, “Enterprise has been very impressed with the quality of SF State graduates because they consistently have what it takes, the skills and the drive, to run a business. They have a very solid educational background, and our management training program jumpstarts their careers toward success.”

Enterprise also offers more than 2,000 internships a year. In 2006, named Enterprise one of the “Five Best Internships for Real Work.” Interns at Enterprise are involved in all aspects of the business and are given responsibilities similar to those of full-time employees.
