College may be fun and educational, but the eventual goal is to use what you learn to find a job.

A Wall Street Journal survey of 500 job recruiters across the country has included Penn State and Rutgers, two colleges popular with New Jersey students, among the top picks for finding future employees.

Penn State was the number one choice. Rutgers ranked 21st.  Big state colleges tended to dominate the top 25. The report says interships are also a very effective way for college students to get their foot in the door of a company where they'd like to work.
