Korean Air Tops List of Best Workplaces in Korea

Korean Air is now the best place to work among large Korean companies.

In an online straw poll of 1,106 university students conducted by job portal site Incruit and released on Wednesday, the airliner was chosen as the best place to work and start a career after graduation, displacing Samsung Electronics, which held the top spot for the last 10 years.

Samsung Electronics placed second, followed by Kookmin Bank, Amore Pacific and CJ Cheiljedang.

"As Korean Air has been boosting corporate recognition and creating a friendlier image through its ads that appeal to many young viewers, many university students seemed to have more interest in the airliner," an Incruit spokesman said.
