Baidu Planning to Expand Internationally?
From Pacific Epoch:
"Chinese search engine Baidu.com (Nasdaq: BIDU) announced on May 22 that it is recruiting engineers competent in Japanese and Vietnamese, Sina reports. Baidu has previously recruited Korean engineers. Baidu public relations director Wang Dong said that this recruitment is only so that Baidu can research foreign markets and that the company will not launch foreign language search websites in the near future."
From Chinabyte (via China Tech Stories):
"Yesterday, Baidu announced a new hiring plan to search for search talents with Japanese and Vietnamese skills. The reporters have found that Baidu had already hired several engineers with Korean skills. Analysts think this is a clear sign that Baidu is planning to expand internationally even they still claims to focus on Chinses search only."
