Conglomerates to Hold Job Fairs for Provincial Students

Major conglomerates will hold several job fairs nationwide to recruit potential employees in early September, the Federation of Korean Industries said on Tuesday.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Employment and Labor, human resources managers of eight conglomerates including LG, Lotte, Samsung, and SK will tour major provincial universities such as Choongnam National University, Chonnam National University, Kyungbuk University and Pusan National University.

They will explain their recruitment process. Recent recruits will also attend the sessions to share how they landed a job.

Lee Cheol-haeng, a senior researcher at FKI, said "We came up with this recruitment drive to help university students in rural areas find jobs."
