MILWAUKEE — Foxconn is ramping up its recruiting efforts before the Mount Pleasant campus even opens. Company representatives visited the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus Monday, Sept. 17 to meet with potential future employees.

With a lot of focus on Foxconn’s promise to hire 13,000 for the Mount Pleasant facility, officials announced a new hiring website as they met with potential candidates at UWM: Foxconnjobs.us.

Swadesh Poddar, a graduate student at UWM, mingled with Foxconn representatives, inquiring about a potential internship or, in two years when he’s finished with grad school, full-time work. “I’ve just started this semester. There are some very diverse areas of research you can do as well if you get the opportunity to work there as an intern or a full-time employee,” said Poddar.

Alan Yeung, Foxconn’s director of strategic initiatives said the company is building and hiring at the same time.”I think we are looking to hire a few hundred people over the next two three months. You will be working on advanced manufacturing, working on how to build and also work with automation and robotics,” said Yeung.
