Attract Qualified Foriegn Workers

Quebec International has spearheaded a series of collaborative initiatives to provide businesses seeking talent with a continuum of adapted services: a website for businesses (www.unmondedexperience.com/), another for prospective immigrants (www.quebecfirst.com/en/), custom training, job posting software that facilitates the processing of thousands of applications, and recruitment missions conducted in partnership with local agencies. A first virtual mission, targeting Francophile Brazil was held in 2013. With the help of a social media promotional campaign, it attracted nearly 2,130 applicants. In addition, the Quebec First website has drawn over 30,000 Brazilian visitors since mission-related job postings were first published online on July 22, 2013. The 8 companies participating in the mission used Skype to interview 108 candidates for the 61 positions they sought to fill, saving time and money in the process.
