The company has set up a campus recruitment section on the recruitment website to solicit all kinds of engineers and talents to offer a monthly salary of NTD46,000/month for undergraduates and a salary of NTD50,000/month for graduates. It is expected that the IC packaging and testing plant in Taichung may recruit another 1,000 people before the end of 2019. The number of the plant’s employees may reach 2,000.
Currently, Micron has 20,000 employees worldwide and more than 7,000 in Taiwan.
