HÀ NỘI – Samsung Việt Nam (SEV) on Saturday held its Global Samsung Aptitude Test (GSAT) for applicants from both the north and the south.
The test was held at the National Convention Centre and at Samsung HCM City Complex (SEHC).
The recruitment of a large number of university graduates is part of Samsung’s expansion plan in Việt Nam. This is an important step in the transformation of Samsung’s strategy to strengthen its leading position as the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturer.
More than 8,800 applicants who are engineers or bachelor degree holders were selected from 20,000 applications to take the GSAT this time.
GSAT is Samsung’s global capacity test for new candidates graduating from universities and comprises three main topics --"mathematical ability," "deductive reasoning" and “visual thinking.” This is one of the first rounds of the recruitment procedure for graduate employees at all Samsung subsidiaries worldwide.
Following the GSAT, high scorers will go through interviews in May. After passing two rounds, the most outstanding and suitable candidates will become official employees of SEV in June. The new recruits will work at eight facilities of SEV.
SEV has been conducting the GSAT since 2011 and nearly 9,500 employees have been enrolled via this recruitment method.
Lee Cheol Ku, deputy general director of Samsung Việt Nam, told Viet Nam News many FDI firms had been investing in Việt Nam. This along with the country’s economic development had brought job opportunities to Vietnamese students.
“As one of the FDI companies in Việt Nam, I see local students have knowledge suitable with the recruitment criteria for FDI. However, Vietnamese students are still weak in their foreign language ability, which is required to work at FDI enterprises,” he said. -- VNS
