GSAT is a Samsung global capacity test for new candidates graduating from universities, and includes three main topics: mathematical ability, deductive reasoning and visual thinking. This is one of the first rounds of the recruitment procedure for graduate staff of all Samsung subsidiaries worldwide.
After the GSAT, high scorers will go through interviews in December. After passing two rounds, the most outstanding and suitable candidates will become official employees of Samsung Vietnam in early 2018 and will work at seven facilities and centres, including Samsung Electronics Vietnam Thai Nguyen (SEVT), Samsung Electro-Mechanics Vietnam (SEMV), Samsung Electronics Vietnam (SEV) and Samsung Display Vietnam (SDV), as well as Samsung SDI Vietnam (SDIV), Samsung SDS Vietnam (SDSV) and SVMC.
Samsung Vietnam Mobile R&D Centre (SVMC) also held its monthly contest for recruitment of programming engineers with the participation of 250 students.
SVMC also examined the Samsung Talent Programme scholarship, with a value of over VND54 million for each student along with the opportunity to work at Samsung R&D right after graduation.
The GSAT recruitment test was first organised by Samsung Vietnam in 2011 and more than 12,300 employees have been recruited through this test so far. The recruitment of a large number of university graduates is a part of Samsung’s expansion plan in Vietnam. This is an important step in the transformation of Samsung’s strategy to strengthen its leading position as the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturer.
