Tencent ramps up hiring to meet stay-at-home demand

WeChat Work telecommuting app sees 15% gain in new users

The expansion of telecommuting in China has spurred demand for related online applications.

GUANGZHOU -- Chinese internet services company Tencent Holdings will boost mid-career hires by more than 25% this year to meet demand linked to telecommuting necessitated by the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The increase would translate to a few thousand mid-career recruits. The company will also take on about 3,000 college interns this spring, around the same number as the normal year.
