Apple is one of the most desired employers on the planet. Because of this, they attract a huge number of job applicants when new job openings become available.

 And a new study found that a job listing from Apple receives a staggering 53.74 applicants per day on average. That’s according to analyzed data from LinkedIn to find what American companies are most and least competitive for job seekers:

 Apple ranks 4th in the list of America’s most competitive companies for job seekers. Ahead of it are Netflix, Amazon, and Microsoft. 

When it comes to Big Tech companies, trailing far behind major players Apple (53.74 applicants) and Oracle (49.22 applicants) comes Intel (12.07 applicants), the least competitive Big Tech company to apply for a job. The chipmaker firm is reportedly struggling to fill key positions due to a shortage of skilled labor. 

Other key findings from the report:

  • The average Netflix job listing on LinkedIn receives more applicants per day (84.87) than any other company — making it the most competitive American firm overall to apply to.
  • The restaurant chains Zaxby’s and Applebee’s rank as the least competitive American companies to apply to, with the average job listing for each receiving 0.01 applicants per day.
  • In the world of banking and finance, S&P Global is the most competitive U.S. company for job hunters (46.69 applicants per job per day).
  • Victoria’s Secret & Co is the most competitive U.S. company to apply to in the clothing sector (46.51 applicants per job per day).

For the survey, — which offers professional field-tested resume templates — collected a sample of job advertisements on LinkedIn published by top companies in the tech, fashion, banking, restaurant, energy and retail sectors. It then retrieved the number of people who applied to each advert and the time the advert was created (discarding listings over 29 days old), enabling it to calculate the average number of applicants per day. This allowed to uncover the most and least competitive companies for job seekers today.
