On Tuesday, LinkedIn unveiled its 100 Most InDemand Employers of 2015 and we're happy to report that at least a dozen of those companies are in the fashion, beauty and media realm. The InDemand list, which highlights the most sought-after employers in North America, was compiled based on the interactions (read: billions) among the social media platform’s 380M+ members, including reach, engagement and job activity.

"These sought-after companies share a common thread: a powerful employer brand that shows off their people, projects, culture and the community they've created around the work they do," wrote Wade Burgess, VP Talent Solutions at LinkedIn, on the website's blog. Within the top 10 employers are Nike (#5) and Procter & Gamble (#8) — and for good reason. Nike is already a $30-billion giant, while P&G owns some of the biggest consumer brands in the country, from drugstore aisle beauty names (Herbal Essences, Olay, Aussie) to luxury skin care label SK-II. "Our research shows that the top reason professionals decline taking a job with a new company is a lack of knowledge of what it's like to work for that organization," said Burgess. To employers and employees alike: Transparency and company culture are key.
