A discussion on the current situation and challenges in the market of acquiring IT talents and on concrete solutions that already (or do not yet) exist.

Is it true that companies have trouble attracting IT talents in the current situation? Is it true that IT talents are expensive and are considered a "special" type of employee? What are the real reasons why companies are not finding candidates and why individuals are not responding to recruitment offers? What can we do about it?

As part of the "Business Talk" series of events, the German-Slovene Chamber of Commerce and Industry, The Slovenia Times, and Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons, cordially invite you to the first event: "Talent Acquisition in the Competitive Global Environment of the IT Industry". As part of the event, we will present unique facts about recruiting programmers and direct responses from the "market" which are mostly underestimated. The event will be held in English.
