4,500 already applied for KIA jobs

KIA Motors (South Korea) has already registered more than 4,500 job applications, one percent of which were submitted by foreigners (Americans, Canadians, Africans, applicants from Baltic and other European countries) currently living in Slovakia, the TASR news wire reported.

According to the KIA's spokesperson Dusan Dvorak, two thirds of applicants have a university education and speak English, which is currently the only condition for accepting the application. Around 10 percent of people were interested in line positions, however, these will be covered next year.

Currently KIA is looking for university-educated people, who will work mostly in production. According to Dvorak, there are still vacancies for administrators. IT specialists, recruitment agents, teachers, financial specialists and economists also have a chance to land a job.

People with secondary education will also be required for the production line. The company is looking for electricians, electric-technicians, car mechanics as well as people without specialization. These positions will be filled in 2006-2007.

Currently, KIA Motors employs around 100 Slovaks and by the end of the year this should rise by a further 400 employees. The company also employs 56 Korean managers.
