The event is divided into two halves, with the first led by National Taiwan University, National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, National Cheng Kung University and National Sun Yat-Sen University. The school programs will be tailored to international students.

The second half, led by renowned semiconductor companies including TSMC, Realtek, Himax and Auden, will introduce high-level industry openings and employee benefits. For participants who submit a resume, a potential interview awaits.

"The Taiwanese government has taken measures like expanding the range of eligible professions, making it easier for outstanding graduates to work in Taiwan, and loosening restrictions on permanent residence to better facilitate the flow of international resources and cultivate overseas talent. By providing a more favorable working environment for foreigners, Taiwan can become the top choice for exceptional individuals seeking education or work," an organizer said.

Taiwan's semiconductor industry is a key force in the global supply chain, with high market shares in the three major fields of IC design, manufacturing, packaging and testing. The industry reached its new peak at a value of NT$3 trillion ($108 billion) in 2020 with a growth of 20.7 percent, making Taiwan the second largest economy by semiconductor industry.

The Taiwanese government officially listed the semiconductor industry at the top of its six core strategic industries, demonstrating its significance in international trade development and promoting Taiwan's competitiveness. In light of its strength in high-level talent, the government is actively pushing Taiwan to become the hub of high-end manufacturing in Asia as well as the center of advanced semiconductor processes and is expected to invest NT$ 7.6 billion over two years.
