Samsung is recruiting staff with college degree in a massive organized drive in the first half of this year despite the coronavirus epidemic.
The conglomerate biannual hiring process is starting about a month later than usual but so far seems on course.
Samsung said on its website Monday that applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. on April 13.
The electronics giant will administer its own written test in May in five regions in Korea -- Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Daejeon, and Gwangju -- and two overseas -- New Jersey and Los Angeles in the U.S. It hopes to complete the process by early July.
The conglomerate decided to "push the process forward because it can no longer delay recruitment that affects the domestic economy significantly amid greater uncertainty in the global economy," a spokesman said.
The logistics of marshalling such huge numbers are challenging. "We're considering a variety of methods, but haven't made any decision yet," the spokesman added.
The conglomerate hopes to administer the test in test centers as usual but could move it online if the epidemic drags on.
