Bank hiring prompts 100 bids per job

The recruitment season for local commercial banks has arrived, prompting job seekers to work to land a job at what they call “God’s workplaces” with good salaries and job security. The competition ratio is upward of 100 applicants per job at some banks.

Hana Bank received 134,000 applications for 100 job spots, the highest competition rate, according to banking industry sources yesterday. The Industrial Bank of Korea saw 21,000 applicants for 220 offered spots, or 95 per opening. Woori Bank wants to hire 200 junior bankers from among 18,000 applicants; KB Kookmin Bank saw competition of 83 to one, and Shinhan Bank had 75 applicants for each job.

NH Nonghyup Bank will?post about 100 job openings?on Oct.29. Korea Exchange Bank, which recruited 84 new workers in the first half of the year, is not recruiting this fall.

Eight major commercial banks, excluding Nonghyup Bank, which has not begun recruiting, have 383 more openings than last year’s 1,723.
