The Taiwan-based company also known as Hon Hai announced this past weekend that it plans to hire 15,000 employees in its native country, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. The hiring spree will attempt to pick up engineers and other qualified talent to work in such areas as telecommunications, e-commerce, biotechnology, automation, software, and hardware development.
Foxconn currently employs around 46,000 workers in Taiwan and more than 1 million in China.
