What is the impact of COVID-19 on recruitment in the semiconductor market?
What hasn’t Covid-19 impacted? The way we work and or our own personal lives have changed in some way, shape or form. Recruitment in the semiconductor market is no different.
The pre-covid traditional ways of working on site 100% of the time are no longer appealing to candidates and we have seen that a lot of candidates won’t hesitate to discount a role if this is the expectation. The vast majority are now looking for hybrid roles to allow for a better work-life balance.
Hybrid working itself has revolutionised many areas of work, a key factor to this is increasing the efficiency of the recruitment process. Being able to have virtual interviews means hiring managers or HR teams based in different areas can collaborate on a quicker timescale.
Over recent years there have been multiple announcements from some of the big players (the likes of Intel, Texas Instrument and TSMC) in the semiconductor industry to build, or consider, facilities that have traditionally been in areas such as Asia. This could be down to the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns in affected areas, so new facilities would allow for tensions to be eased.
From a recruitment perspective, this will lead to talent being in even more demand. Candidates who are actively searching for work are likely to have multiple offers of employment meaning more detailed analysis of company reviews and packages is required.
