“International reqruitment concerns us all. The attractivness of a region consists of many things – not only on the possibility to work here. And it’s not enough to get a job at “a big, Finnish company”, but it also needs to provide the opportunity to advance in your carrier.”
“The guide to international reqruitment was good. Clearly structured and with concrete issues!”
“A well planned package. Congratulations to the Talent Coastline Employment project for a great webinar. Keep up the good work.”
