Samsung Corporation is hiring, but they will only hire you if you come from a wealthy family. Just a mere five percent of its workforce are employees who came from impoverished circumstances.
The Joong Ang Daily, "Samsung Group doesn’t officially announce the proportion of natural science or humanities majors it has hired. The group has only revealed that at least 30 percent of selected applicants would be women, 35 percent will have graduated from universities outside of Seoul (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and Pohang University of Science and Technology are not in subject to this rule), and 5 percent will be from low-income families."
Samsung is refusing to recruit employees who studied the Liberal Arts' in college as well.
According to the Joong ang Daily, "Industry insiders said that about 85 percent of Samsung Electronics’ new recruits majored in natural sciences. The flagship company of Samsung Group offered jobs by dividing groups into R&D, facilities, technology, sales and marketing, management support and design."
Most Samsung employees hail from Seoul National University, which is perceived as a University for rich South Korean kids.
