Volvo’s Hiring

by Gunnar Heinrich ::: img Volvo Cars ::: Volvo Hires 1,200 Workers

POLISH those CVs. Practice that pitch in the mirror. Firm up that handshake. Volvo’s announced that it’s ready to hire 1,200 workers – 600 of whom will be based in Sweden.

The accrual of skilled labor will happen over the course of a year and the new workforce will focus on R&D for alternative fuels and fuel efficiency. Keep in mind that Volvo did lay off 25,000 workers during the downturn and Volvo sales remain unsteady in the developed markets. Still – eyes on the prize, people. Eyes on the prize.
