The Samsung Group is seeing the largest number of job applicants in its history. Over 100,000 university graduates applied for 5,500 openings in the second half of the year.
In the second half of last year, Samsung hired 4,500 graduates from among over 80,000 applicants.
Given that the country's universities produced a combined 320,000 graduates this year, one in every three applied to Samsung.
The group has picked 35 percent of new hires from universities outside Seoul since last year and therefore saw a hike in the number of applicants from the provinces.
