CEO Shin Hak-cheol of LG Chem has personally hosted a local recruitment event in the US to recruit global talents who will foster the new ESG-based growth engines, the company said on Sept. 22.
The CEO hosted the 'Business & Campus' tour, a recruitment event held at the Teaneck Marriott Hotel in New Jersey, the U.S., on Sept. 18.
Around 40 master’s, doctoral, and undergraduate students from 10 major universities and research institutes, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Georgia Institute of Technology, and Cornell University, were invited to the event.
CEO Shin ran a “conversation with the management” session and directly shared the company’s visions with the invited students.
The talents who attended the event were mostly students that were majoring in fields related to LG Chem’s future growth engines such as ecofriendly and bio materials, battery materials, and new drug development.
During the event, Shin stated, “LG Chem is the world's seventh largest chemical company, the only global top 10 company with increased revenue and operating profit compared to 2019, and was selected as the one of the top 100 global companies with increased corporate value after COVID-19.”
Further, he added, “LG Chem has been able to create unprecedented upward momentum even during this historical inflection point caused by the pandemic.”
