Government of Korea to hire 10,000 interns to boost youth employment

The Ministry of Strategy and Finance decided Thursday to recommend that state agencies ensure that at least 20 percent of their new hires have internship experience.

The nation's 284 state-run agencies have announced plans to hire about ten-thousand interns next year with an aim of boosting youth employment.

The Ministry of Strategy and Finance also decided Thursday to recommend that state agencies ensure that at least 20 percent of their new hires have internship experience.

Under the ministry’s recruitment plan, the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) will bring in over 770 new interns, the most of any agency. In terms of new interns, KEPCO will be followed by the National Health Insurance Corporation and the Korea Land and Housing Corporation.

The state organizations will avoid having the interns work as simple office assistants but rather will grant them specific tasks. They also will not be assigned any security-related work.
