The upcoming $1.1 billion Tesla Gigafactory at Austin, Texas, which would produce Cybertruck, Semi truck, Model 3 sedan, and Model Y mid-size SUV, is looking to hire more than 10,000 people through 2022. Interestingly, this includes opportunities for high school graduates as well who won’t need a college degree to join the most valuable car company in the world. “Over 10,000 people are needed for Giga Texas just through 2022! – 5 mins from airport -15 mins from downtown – Right on Colorado river,” Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted sharing a post by ‘Tesla Owners of Austin’, a club of Tesla owners in Austin, about the job openings.

Tesla has established relationships with Austin Community College, Huston-Tillotson University, the University of Texas, and the Del Valle Independent School District, Chris Reilly, Director, Recruiting and Workforce Development at Tesla said about the latest recruitment drive in the tweet by the Tesla Owners of Austin. Reilly added that part of the work Tesla is doing with local colleges is “thinking about recruiting students who can graduate high school and start a career at Tesla while continuing their education.” The hiring of 10,000 people by Tesla will double of 5,000 people the company had reportedly promised last year.
