LG Chem making big effort to recruit talented Chinese staff

LG Chem’s Vice Chairman Park Jin-soo has rolled up his sleeves to find competitive Chinese workers as part of the company’s efforts to expand its market share in the country.

According to the company on Sunday, the 63-year-old invited about 30 seniors from China’s 10 universities who were recently hired by the company to join after graduation. Park invited them to a hotel in Beijing during the weekend and shared the company’s visions for the future.

“About 40 percent of LG Chem’s total revenues are made in China,” Park said in the event. “Since China will also be the biggest market for the company’s new businesses in the future, I came to bring competitive local workers who can help us realize our goals.”

LG Chem’s total revenue was 22.5778 trillion won ($19.243 billion) last year, according to the company.

In addition to his efforts to find talented Chinese workers, Park brought Prof. Lee Jin-kyu from Seoul National University to the company’s weapons material business and supervised the Business & Campus Tour, a job fair organized by the company, in Japan.
