Every year since taking office in 2012, Park has participated in the company’s global recruiting event, which takes places in such countries as the US, Japan, China, according to LG Chem. 

The recruiting event “Business & Campus,” held at Intercontinental Hotel in Los Angles over the weekend, was attended by some 40 students with degrees from 30 major universities in the US including Stanford University and Duke University. 

“LG Chem has risen to become one of the world’s top 10 chemical companies this year, marking the first case among Korean firms. Such an 
achievement was attributable to our employees’ passion for their jobs and aspiration for the best,” Park said during the event.

The CEO’s participation in the recruiting process reflects his belief that quality employees constitute the core of sustainable growth, according to the company.

“LG Chem is targeting yearly growth of 15 percent through large-scale investments and new businesses,” an official said. “The vision makes it all the more important for us to pre-emptively secure creative and competitive talent.”
