Samsung Electronics was chosen for the fifth year in a row as the No. 1 company that college students and jobseekers wish to work in.
Eighteen per cent of the 2,644 people surveyed by online recruiting information provider Saram In picked Samsung Electronics, followed by Hyundai Motor (7.7 per cent), Korea Electric Power Corp. (6.9 per cent), POSCO (5.2 per cent), CJ CheilJedang (4.1 per cent), Korean Air (3 per cent), SK Energy (1.9 per cent) and LG Electronics (1.7 per cent).
High salary was the reason jobseekers favored Samsung Electronics, Hyundai Motor and SK Energy. Working environment and organisational culture were the top reasons for choosing POSCO, CJ CheilJedang and LG Electronics in the weeklong poll through Tuesday.
KEPCO was chosen for job stability such as a guaranteed retirement age, and Korean Air for employee benefits and welfare including opportunities for self-improvement.
