They also discussed about the local labour market characteristics and how immigration can be a viable solution, for example in the case of Pakistanis workers that could easily fill in the jobs in transport as their driver license is very easy to be recognised in Romania.
Moreover, the employers from Iasi County learned more about the recruiting process from the perspective of a company with experience in recruiting foreign citizens, who offered many advices and highlighted the most salient TCN’s workplace integration needs.
