International Women in Business are now on their 3rd Talent Fair in Dusseldorf.
At our previous Talent Fairs, 80% of the women who presented found jobs within 3 months. The companies and speakers found the experience enlightening.
“This is an untapped talent pool of women who are motivated and experienced who we can have access to. Sign us up!” Uniper.
How does the Talent Fair work?
12 women from our network will climb the stage and present themselves for 5 minutes in a TED-Talk style. You will get an overview of the talents that these women bring and International companies across Düsseldorf will have a chance to match them with vacancies. Afterwards there will be some time for informal networking with the speakers, companies and other members of our network.
Are you interested in coming?
It would be a great encouragement for our speakers! The venue is kindly provided by Uniper (Holzstraße 6, 40221 Düsseldorf) on Thursday 20th October from 7:30pm to 10pm.
Why is our organisation doing this?
A study from the Permits Foundation shows the profile of the stay-at-home-parent.
When companies move an employee from one country to another, many times it is necessary to relocate the entire family. This normally means that one of the partners moves without work contacts.
It also shows that although 84% of the spouses aspire to work before the expatriation, only 35% actually do.
Our organization is aware of this pool of wasted talent and aims to help these very talented women to continue their careers and be able to contribute with their skills to the business world.
