[SPONSORED REPORT] NCSOFT offers advice to job seekers
NCSOFT, a Korean game company, is providing various “untact” methods of career counseling programs for job seekers. Many of the programs were provided online to insure the safety of applicants amid the coronavirus outbreak.
One-on-one online career counseling was held for 2 days starting May 12. Online video communication platform Zoom was used for the applicants to effectively communicate with the staff already working for the company. This program received positive responses since it provided opportunities to get to know the company in detail before applying.
An online inquiry session was also held. Through Dokchwisa, one of the largest online forums for job seekers in Korea, applicants could post questions about the company and the overall recruitment process and a recruiting manager would directly answer them. The answers were posted on May 15.
In addition, NCSOFT introduced 3 video clips on its social media accounts, such as Facebook and YouTube. These video clips included practical information about the recruitment. The first clip explains the working environment of the company along with an internship program called NC Flagship. The second clip shows four applicants who were hired through the NC Flagship program sharing their thoughts and personal experiences. The last clip is a Q. and A. session in which current staff members answer the most frequently-asked questions from online job-seeking communities and websites.
NC Flagship is an internship program that offers opportunities for outstanding interns and grants a position in the end of the program. This program is especially helpful since the interns can gain actual work experience by actively participating in the real working environment. Also, a mentor will be assigned to each intern making it easier for them to ask questions about their work. Interns are paid a maximum of 2.5 million won ($2,000) and can enjoy welfare benefits equivalent to that of the regular staff.
