Hyundai Motor foreign job forum set for August
Hyundai Motor Group will hold a forum to recruit Korean students and experienced workers abroad.
The company said Monday it will hold the Hyundai Motor Group Global Top Talent Forum Aug. 21 to 23 in Chicago to hire Korean graduate students and experienced workers. It said the group’s four affiliates - Hyundai Motor, parts maker Hyundai Mobis, Hyundai Steel and Hyundai AutoEver Corporation, an IT company - will be at the forum.
Instead of typical interviews, each participant will be asked to discuss a specific subject related to the areas on which the four businesses have been focusing lately.
Applicants for Hyundai Motor and Hyundai Mobis, for instance, will be asked to pick a topic from subjects such as environmentally friendly cars, smart cars, driving performance technology or driverless systems.
Applicants then will have to make a presentation on the selected topic to company executives.
The company added that eligible candidates can apply for the employment forum at www.hyundai.co.kr/Careers.hub through June 30, Korea time. Hyundai has not specified how many people it will hire.
The company said it will pay for participants’ expenses, including accommodations and airfare, and offer prize money of up to $3,000 to candidates who make strong presentations. The company also said executives of the four companies will give presentations on their R&D activities and visions.
“We have been doing this every year since 2011, as we believe that hiring competitive people from diverse circles will strengthen our overall competitiveness in the global market,” said a spokesman for Hyundai Motor. “We have set many goals for the next few years, things like improving fuel efficiency by 25 percent by 2020 for Hyundai cars. This is part of our work to accomplish such goals.”
