Intel enhances hiring in Taiwan to secure chips supply chain

Intel Corporation has enhanced hiring activity in Taiwan. The move forms part of Intel’s strategy to scale the existing supply chains with PC manufacturers in Taiwan and work with external foundries to ensure design, quality, and reliability of its products, says GlobalData.

Intel’s job postings in Taiwan increased more than three times from 25 in February 2021 to 93 in March 2021.

Ajay Thalluri, Business Fundamentals Analyst at GlobalData said: “Intel’s job postings surge in Taiwan is significant given its 2020 hiring trend in the country and the company’s renewed focus on achieving supply security of semiconductors for its PC partners.”
