LG Energy Solution has introduced the “Battery Tech Conference (BTC)” to secure outstanding talents. BTC is an event where excellent master’s and doctoral candidates from home and abroad are invited to introduce the vision for battery technology and business, and networking opportunities with employees take place.

In particular, BTC is linked to recruitment. To recruit essential master’s and doctoral talents for R&D positions, we select target labs after rigorous verification and provide company presentations and job-related information. Through these activities, LG Energy Solution secures talent pools in advance. Additionally, we operate a special recruitment process that includes inviting applicants to the BTC event, conducting interviews, and completing the recruitment process within approximately one month from application.

BTC provides a positive applicant experience and has shown high satisfaction and employment rates, contributing to successful onboarding. Consequently, in 2022, 80 top-level master’s and doctoral candidates were recruited through BTC. In April 2023, the BTC in San Francisco invited 40 local Korean-American master’s and doctoral candidates for the event and interview process. In addition, the BTC held in Seoul in June 2023 included visits to target labs where we met 35 master’s and doctoral candidates. We will continue to secure outstanding talents in the battery field.
