Elon Musk is hiring people for Tesla Singapore
It seems that Elon Musk has departed from his earlier position that the Singapore government was unsupportive and unwelcoming of Tesla, if the job postings made by the company on LinkedIn is any indicator.
As per the LinkedIn post, Tesla, one of the most valuable car makers in the world, is looking to hire people to the following positions in the Singapore market — Parts Advisor, Service Advisor, Service Manager, Vehicle Readiness Specialist, and Vehicle Service Technician.
Musk, who is known for using Twitter to share his widely controversial ideas, often take the unconventional routes to hire candidates. In the past, he had made it clear that candidates applying for a job in his billion-dollar company need not graduate high school.
In a 2014 interview with German tabloid Bild, he had said: “A PhD is definitely not required, I don’t care if you even graduated high school.”
The way he identifies potential candidates is through “evidence of exceptional ability”. “If there is a track record of exceptional achievement, then it is likely that that will continue into the future,” he said.
Hong Seh Motors, a local dealership, claims on its website that it is the only retailer of Tesla cars in Singapore, according to Straits Times but it is still yet to be confirmed.
Today, Tesla’s parent company is worth nearly US$304.6 billion, and Musk’s relentless innovation has certainly disrupted, not just the auto world but also the outer space with the mission to colonise Mars.
