For those avid job hunters on the prowl, this is the list for you. CNNMoney compiles a list of 25 companies that each have at least 700 openings–that’s more than 56,000 jobs and one of them could be just right for you.

Number one on the list is the company most of us use in some format on a daily basis–Google. Also ranked the best companies of the year, Google currently has about 700 jobs available. Although Google is looking for employees to with various skillsets to fill its positions, this year they are especially looking for sales team members and hundreds of software engineers.

“Cultural fit and diversity are very important to us,” Yolanda Mangolini tells CNN Money. “We aim to reflect the globally diverse audience of our products and believe that we can serve our users better when we foster a diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures within the company.”

Mangolini also discloses that Google looks for candidates that are well-rounded and accomplished in several areas.

The Boston Consulting Group is next on the list. It may not be as well-known as Google, but with about 2,000 position openings, it currently has more opportunities for applicants to consider. There are multiple consultant positions available within the company. According to Mel Wolfgang, a recruiting partner at Boston Consulting Group, this company looks for applicants that “demonstrate a natural curiosity to explore other, related issues and opportunities.”

Third on the list is Wegmans Food Market. Wegmans has about 884 current openings, mostly in retail customer service. Above all they look for candidates that value what they value. Kevin Stickles in Human Resources discloses that the company doesn’t mind teaching anything else its employees need to know.

Job seekers will certainly want to check with Marriott International. The large hotel corporation has about 4,500 job openings, including 340 housekeeper positions and 221 guest service representatives’ availabilities.

“As a company, we offer the resources and encouragement employees need to develop to their full potential, so we look for candidates that have a passion for learning and growth,” Francisca Martinez, the Vice President of Global Talent Acquisition and Mobility, said to CNN Money.

For the retail enthusiasts, Nordstrom is number 13 on the list with 3,022 job openings. The company is looking for people to fill sales and support positions, online, IT, HR, finance and several other roles.

Those in the medical field may want to look to Mayo Clinic. This company is searching for scientists, physicians, registered nurses, physician assistants and much more.
