As student job seekers struggle amid the worst employment situation in years, All Nippon Airways topped their list of sought-after employers for a second year, while troubled Japan Airlines fell to 52nd place, according to a recent survey conducted by a major job-hunting Web site.

"Students seem to have been influenced by the recent news (of JAL's pending bankruptcy)," said Misako Kanamori, a Rakuten Inc. spokeswoman.

The survey was conducted on student job hunters registered at the online shopping mall's job information Web site.
