Asustek Computer, one of the world’s largest makers of personal computers and the biggest maker of mainboards, plans to lift its freeze on hiring because of improving market conditions, a media report claims citing sources with knowledge of the matter. Even though the number of positions Asus plans to fill does not seem to be high, the fact that a large company actually has unbanned hiring seems to be quite positive in general.

In response to warming market conditions, Asustek has lifted a freeze on hiring that has been in effect since the end of 2008, reports DigiTimes web-site. Various departments are set to hire additional personnel, including the company's handheld business groups, graphics card, notebook and handheld device businesses also require additional personnel. Moreover, it is reported that Asus is in short of engineers for its communications business, as well as sales and marketing personnel.

Jonney Shih, the chairman of Asustek Computer, is reportedly very enthusiastic about the company’s sales results in the third quarter of 2009 and expects a major uptick in demand for PCs in the following quarters.

According to DigiTimes, Asus will start hiring by the end of October or early November, and the firm will initiate interviewing for a total of more than 70 job openings. Even though 70 new positions at one of the globe’s largest IT companies may not seem that significant, the very fact that Asustek is ending its hiring freeze seems to be a good news in general.

Asustek Computer has reportedly confirmed the plans.
