SK Group has decided not to open a new college graduate from next year.

It means that we will not recruit multiple people at once as we do now, and we will hire them whenever necessary.

Following Hyundai Motor and LG, SK has decided to remove the bonds, and among the top five Korean companies, only Samsung and Lotte are left with regular bonds for new employees.

Companies say that removing bonds does not reduce the size of their recruitment, but for those who are preparing for employment, the job openings are still narrow, and they are worried that the number of recruits from large companies will decrease in the future, and the phenomenon of preferential treatment for careers will become more severe.

This is Lee Sung-hoon.


Kang Tae-

hoon, a

job-prepared student, is anxious about the news of the abolition of the college graduate bond.

Recruitment is because it is difficult to predict the timing and size of hiring, and the size of hiring new college graduates will decrease in an atmosphere where career positions are preferred.

[Kang Tae-hoon/Job-prepared student: It is true that the size of recruitment is already decreasing due to the corona, so even if we prepare, we do not select a lot, so the uncertainty increases and the anxiety increases...

.] When

we surveyed 705 domestic companies, the rate of occasional hiring from 30.7% two years ago rose to 49.9%.

It was judged that the method of hiring a large-scale at a certain point in time was less efficient in selecting talent.

Since the coronavirus outbreak, changes in employment methods are accelerating as the types of work have diversified, such as working from home.

As a result, the proportion of job-seekers who said that the employment burden increased due to the expansion of frequent recruitment exceeded 55%.

[Hong Ki-seok / Professor of Economics, Ewha Womans University: Industries that are difficult to replace people, entertainment or ventures. It seems that a lot of jobs should be created in such a way, and the entire industrial structure is reorganized.

.] For

job seekers, the competition for new entrants such as recruitment-related interns is fierce, and the burden is inevitably increased as they have to prepare for new hiring methods such as non-face-to-face interviews.
