Foxconn Technology Group plans to hire “a few hundred” employees in the next two or three months as it ramps up recruiting events targeting veterans and Wisconsin college students, Foxconn director of U.S. strategic initiatives Alan Yeung said Monday.
“This is not your normal job. These are things that are moving at Foxconn’s speed,” he said, emphasizing the opportunity to work on advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence and health care challenges. He also said there’s a role for those in liberal arts fields to play as Foxconn builds up its operation.
Yeung declined to say how many employees Foxconn currently has in Wisconsin. In June, executives said the company had around 100 employees. The company needs at least 260 jobs in the state at the end of the year to receive any tax credits for the year. Foxconn would need 1,040 employees to earn the $9.5 million in credits available for 2018. Read the full story here.
