Taiwan-based manufacturing giant Foxconn Technology Group has launched a recruitment drive, offering a monthly salary of no less than NT$45,000 (US$1,485) to university graduates.
For those with a master's degree, the starting pay will be NT$52,000 per month at the minimum, while doctorate degree holders will earn at least NT$60,000 a month, Foxconn announced in a statement issued earlier this week. The latest recruitment drive is aimed at attracting talent mainly in the core technology areas of artificial intelligence, semiconductors, and next generation mobile communications, and also in the emerging industries of electric cars, digital healthcare, and robotics, the company said.
In addition, the company said, it will offer comprehensive training in technology, management, and general knowledge to help its new employees build successful careers. For example, all employees hired in the latest round of recruitment will be trained to become mid-range management staff in the future, said Foxconn.
It urged interested persons to apply via its website and said interviews of selected applicants will also be conducted online. Foxconn, the world's largest contract electronics maker, has been working to expand into the development of software and to integrate that with its hardware manufacturing proficiency. [FULL STORY]
