Key topics we will address during this session:

  • No of Jobs Ads – evolution autumn 2023: What are the domains with the biggest No. of available jobs nationwide and how is Timisoara doing when compared with other major cities? What are the differences between the Romania’s largest and busiest cities in terms of job opportunities?
  • Open Salary Offers: Transparency is becoming the name of the game. But how many of the Romanian companies are embracing open salary policies, and what impact does it make on the general market?
  • Hybrid & Remote Revolution: The workplace has transcended boundaries. Are hybrid and remote jobs here to stay, since they offer flexibility and work-life balance? Or are we embracing the in-office work schedule once again?
