The virtual recruitment event connects companies in North Karelia and skilled international job applicants

International talent recruitment day

The international talent recruitment day is a series of recruitment events organized by Business Joensuu, where employers and their open positions from different industries in North Karelia and international job seekers meet online to recruit talented employees for companies. The digital recruitment platform and online job interviews enable a smooth recruitment process for employers and international job seekers. The service includes the support and guidance of international recruitment business coach Heli Saario.

The International recruitment day was successfully implemented for the first time on November 16, 2022, and will be continued with two sector-specific recruitment days in 2023.

Feedback from the companies that participated in the virtual recruitment day on November 16, 2022:

  • "Because of the difference, it was meaningful to participate in the online event compared to the most traditional recruitment events, where companies have a stand in a large space, and where job seekers come."
  • "Companies feel that such a virtual event format was very efficient in terms of time management and it is easy to participate."
  • "Compared to other ways to get in touch with talented international job seekers, here they were of particularly tough applicants."
  • "The companies appreciated that North Karelia as a region was marketed so strongly in the event. Life and work balance in North Karelia brought out. They would not have had the know-how to do this themselves."
