Students at California schools have a leg up when it comes to getting hired by the top tech companies.

Recruiting company HiringSolved pulled data from more than 10,000 public social media accounts and measured the volume of hires made by the top 25 tech companies in the last year.

The data showed that graduates from schools like University of California, Berkeley, UC San Diego, Stanford, and California Polytechnic Institute end up at the top tech companies in Silicon Valley. And out of the top 25 schools, most were public universities and only one Ivy League school – Cornell University – made the list.

Here are the schools that produce the most tech employees.
