All companies have one thing in common for recruitment: It’s not just any applicant that they look for, but those who are tightly and widely wired, ready, and all set go. There are endless list of things that applicants may wish to prepare for when handing in their resumes. Knowing “what” to prepare may be easy, but “how” to prepare it is the key.
In 2013 recruitment, POSCO aims to hire Koreans as well as foreign employees to expand our global business frontier. Currently, POSCO seeks positions for an executer, a creator, and a cosmopolitan.
Personality Is What Matters At the End of the Day
Here at POSCO, we look for long-term employees to ultimately become one of our genuine POSCO family members. Impressive qualifications and previous experiences are indeed important when evaluating a candidate. However, POSCO searches for something beyond that. We look at how your experience and activities relate to you as an individual, which may include reviewing your charity activities, second major/double majors, university experiences, foundations, inventions, social groups, internships, knowledge of history and so much more.
Of course, there are no particular restrictions given to those who have not graduated with degrees in HR, sales, marketing or finance. Yet we notify that in terms of specific skills such as machinery, electricity, chemicals, IE, resources, civil engineering or architecture, graduates may have an advantage.
Resume is POSCO’s First Insight to the Unique YOU
Recruiters read every single résumé and personal statements word by word. It is given that personal statements should be genuine and truthful. However, we advise applicants to keep away from the overly cliché or emotional stories. Instead, give us something that makes you stand out from the typical crowd, something “unique” about you as an individual.
“Carpe Diem,” as they say, but preparing and investing for your “Tomorrow,” will help you lead your future. A definite guarantee for the future can only lie on the people living the days of tomorrow. As briefly introduced above, your resume is what matters, as it’s our first contact with YOU. It’s not about “what” goes on your resume, but “how” much it reflects you. POSCO is willing to take that extra step with those who are ready and eager. Our doors are wide open, and it’s up to you to enter.
