TAIPEI--Morris Chang, chairman of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), topped a list of "dream bosses" for first-time jobseekers, a survey showed Saturday.
yes123, one of Taiwan's leading online human resource agencies, cited the survey as saying that 39.1 percent of the respondents in the survey said Chang was their most desired boss at a time when they were seeking the first job in their life.
The survey indicated that the young generation has paid much attention to whether an employer will be able to offer good benefits and tries hard to help employees find a balance between work and their family or leisure life.
In late May, TSMC, the world's largest contract chip-maker, won the first "Work-Life Balance Award" presented by the Ministry of Labor in recognition of the company's efforts to promote such a balance.
The award recognized the company's pledge to help its employees enjoy a healthy and balanced life and create an environment for the employees to start families and have babies.
Steve Day, head of restaurant chain operator Wowprime Corp., came in second as 37.1 percent of the respondents said he was the most desired boss to them, while 30.6 percent of them thought Chang Yung-fa, founder of shipping giant Evergreen Group was their ideal boss.
According to the survey, these first-time jobseekers said it remained hard to land a job for the time being. On average, they had to send 23.4 resumes to get a chance for an interview, while they had to go through 7.1 interviews to find a job.
Overall, these first-time jobseekers had to send about 166 resumes to get their first jobs, the survey showed.
The survey was conducted between May 28 and June 5 and gathered 1,206 valid questionnaires with a confidence level of 95 percent and a margin of error of 2.82 percentage points.
