50+ Cameron-Brooks client companies featured in latest Fortune 500 list

FORTUNE Magazine recently published their annual Fortune 500 list, marking the 63rd running of the list. The companies are ranked by total revenues for their respective fiscal years .  According to the article, “in total, Fortune 500 companies represent two-thirds of the U.S. with $12 trillion in revenues, $890 billion in profits, $19 trillion in market value, and employ 28.2 million people worldwide.”


To be considered a Fortune 500 company, the company must meet three basic criteria:

  1. The  company must be headquartered in the United States.
  2. The company must be publicly traded.
  3. The company’s annual revenues for their fiscal year must exceed $5.1B (this is the annual revenue of the 500th company for 2017)

We are excited to see several of our clients made the list.  In fact, at my first pass through the list, over 50 of the Fortune 500 companies on this list are Cameron-Brooks clients that have attended Career Conferences to recruit top JMOs in the past 1-2 years alone, and several have been recruiting from Cameron-Brooks for decades.   Some of our client companies that made this years list include: Wal-Mart, Exxon-Mobil, Proctor & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Stryker, Corning, United Technologies, FedEx, Goldman Sachs, USAA, Eli Lilly, Textron, LAM Research, DaVita Healthcare, Kraft Heinz, AmerisourceBergen, Delek US Holdings, Newell Brands, and many more.

Congratulations to our clients, and our Alumni who work at these industry leading companies, for their achievement.  While Cameron-Brooks works with many of these companies, we also work with companies that are not on this list, usually because they do not meet one of the three criteria listed of above.  So, we work with smaller companies, companies headquartered outside the US, privately held companies, etc.  We work with a variety of companies to give our candidates choices of differently industries, size, locations, etc  but also to help mitigate ebbs and flows in the economy.

Even though are client companies are diversified, they will all have a few things in common.  1) They are leaders in their industry; 2) they value your background as a JMO and 3) they have current openings they are ready to fill that will match your availability as you transition from the military.

If you are considering a transition and would like to explore your options to see how your background and interest may fit with these companies and Corporate America, please visit our Resource Center to get started.
