Just the Facts:
  • Ford announced Friday that it will hire 2,200 salaried workers in the U.S. this year, the largest increase in salaried workers in more than a decade.

  • Ford's recruiting through social media is being expanded.

DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford announced Friday that it will hire 2,200 salaried workers in the U.S. this year, the largest increase in salaried workers in more than a decade.

Ford said it will fill jobs in product development, manufacturing and information technology.

Ford's recruiting through social media is being expanded through recruitment on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. The automaker will also step up its recruiting of military veterans.

The hiring push is designed "to support the continued aggressive pace of new Ford product introductions," the company said in a statement. Ford recently introduced such new vehicles as the 2013 Ford C-Max Energi.

"As we expand our product lineup of fuel-efficient vehicles, we need more people in critical areas — such as in a range of engineering activities, vehicle production, computer software and other IT functions — to ensure we deliver the vehicles people want and value," it added.

All salaried job openings at Ford are posted on the Ford Careers Web site.

Edmunds says: Ford hangs out the "Help Wanted" sign in a big way.
