What makes it so great? This financial-services company looks for motivated self-starters, who can expect 12 weeks of intensive training as they leave the gate. Last year it hired 58 new college grads to work at its Cleveland headquarters and paid them an average starting salary of $45,000. Not sure what area you'd like to work in? The first year includes rotational training between different businesses (from retail to small-business banking, loans, investing, and wealth management), helping to build the potential to transfer to other cities around the country, including Dallas, Boston, Atlanta, and New York.
