A majority of the open positions with be newly created and according to media.ford.com approximately 80% of the open positions will be “technical professionals to meet demand for new skills”. Ford is specifically looking for individuals that are ” interested in working for a diverse global leader in a huge growth mode.”
“Engineers and technical professionals are in as much demand as our (vehicles),” Felicia Fields, group vice president-human resources, says in a statement. “Global demand and increasing capacity in North America and Asia requires that we aggressively seek out technical professionals in order to continue our growth.”

Last year, Ford announced it would hire more than 6,200 hourly employees across the U.S. to increase capacity to meet demand for its new products.
