Recently, China Southern Airlines' recruitment in Taiwan triggered a surge of responses; the eight positions it offered attracted 1,100 applications from candidates.
According to Taiwanese media, on this occasion China Southern Airlines mainly recruited salespersons for passenger and freight transport, service staff in airports and e-business workers. It firstly selected 100 qualified candidates from the 1,100, and then eliminated a further 80 following preliminary interviews. The remaining 20 candidates attended a final interview on June 18, and eight were selected and employed.
In January this year when the Taiwan office of China Southern Airlines was established, the company immediately recruited 13 personnel in Taiwan. According to China Southern Airlines staff, they decided to recruit Taiwanese personnel this time because cross-Strait scheduled flights are about to start. As cross-Strait business develops, they will continue to recruit personnel, including senior managers in Taiwan.
Besides China South Airlines, airline companies including Air China, China Eastern Airlines, Xiamen Airlines and Shanghai Airlines have also set up offices in Taiwan and successively expressed that they would recruit and hire Taiwanese employees. Of these companies, China Eastern Airlines will recruit 20 to 30 employees in Taiwan.
