Share Article

A fat salary is not the only thing that counts for today’s young job seekers – social responsibility ranks high too according to the second episode of the new CareerTV Show which aired yesterday.

It was tremendously rewarding to showcase the hard work and passion of so many diverse employers.

The second episode of the new CareerTV Show aired yesterday. The topic was the most socially responsible employers. The CareerTV Show is produced by CareerTV, the nation’s leading career video website.

"The current generation of job seekers is interested not just in money, but also how they impact the environment and their community," states Jim Buttimer, CEO of CareerTV.

The CareerTV team traveled around the world to see social responsibility in action. The Peace Corps, Teach for America, the Mayo Clinic, and the US Air Force were among the organizations profiled.

Below are the Top 10 Most Socially Responsible Employers, according to Universum’s annual survey*:
1. Peace Corps
2. Teach For America
3. Mayo Clinic
4. U.S. Air Force
5. U.S. Army
6. Ernst & Young
7. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol
8. Internal Revenue Service
10. HCA

"This show is loaded with the philanthropic views and actions of more than a dozen employers," says CareerTV Executive Producer Sean O’Grady. "It was tremendously rewarding to showcase the hard work and passion of so many diverse employers."

One of the individuals interviewed was U.S. Air Force Captain Alex Fafinski. He and his KC-10 flight crew were featured in this episode for their humanitarian efforts abroad. "When you think of the military, you're automatically going to think about the Global War on Terrorism, but what people aren't hearing about is the thousands upon thousands of pounds of water, food, and medical aid we drop every day in places around the world. I'm proud to know college students recognized this and I'm equally proud of CareerTV for telling this under-reported story," added Melissa Uhniat, CareerTV's Producer.

Teach for America Educators at Cardozo High School were also featured. "We're working very hard every day to close the achievement gap for underprivileged students. I hope this story inspires college students who are thinking about a teaching career to take the plunge and join us," said TFA member Clarisse Mendoza.

This is the second CareerTV episode in the 2008 season. It will air on over 50 TV stations around the U.S. Next month the CareerTV team will focus on the Top 10 Undergraduate Employers in the country.
