Many companies are currently suffering from a shortage of specialists and managers. In the competition for the best young talent, it is important for companies to actively prevent a further shortage of skilled workers.

The joint project KarriereRegion of TRK and is a good example of win-win cooperation within the framework of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion's skilled labor alliance. - the video job portal of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion

Finding employees who fit the corporate culture? It's easy with a job video. A job video lets future colleagues speak. They give interested parties a very informal job description and authentic insights into their working environment. A slightly different way to arouse sympathy and interest in the company.
