In 2012, we continued to focus on worldwide recruitment efforts and launched engineeringchange to ensure that the company has a consistent worldwide communication platform for telling our story online and on campuses. We aggressively promoted the program using the Web, paid and earned media, print materials and more. We also refreshed our career pages with new messaging, employee testimonials, “Day in the Life” videos and engineering product development case studies.
In China, our teams visited numerous universities to identify top new college graduate talent. Over three weeks, they conducted career talks and on-site interviews at 21 universities in 16 cities. More than 8,000 students attended these events and we received nearly 28,000 resumes online. As a result of these recruiting efforts, we anticipate hiring nearly 175 individuals in 2013.
