Samsung Seeks U.S. Graduates for Jobs in Korea
Samsung thinks U.S. graduate students can better drive the its business in North America. The company is taking applications through next Tuesday, October 16, from graduates with master’s or doctoral degrees in science or engineering from "prestigious U.S. universities," or those who will complete them by December. Samsung is also taking on MBA holders and interns still in college, says The Korea Times, though how many isn't clear. Doctoral candidates must have a degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, medical engineering or materials engineering. Samsung Display, an affiliate of the South Korean Company, is taking applications for master's and Ph.D. candidates through Monday, as will the group's research arm, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology. Those selected will begin an internship next summer. In 2014, they'll embark on full-time jobs at the company's offices in South Korea. This news follows Samsung Semiconductor's plans announced in August to "considerably" expand its R&D facility and employment in San Jose.
