Our interview partners today are proven experts in addressing and onboarding international professionals and students. In numerous so-called recruitments, they support companies and internationals in getting to know each other, docking and staying, and in this context they have also specialized in the topic of “employer branding”. Because it is not a matter of course that international students stay. Julia discusses with her two experts which prerequisites must be created for this, why there is no way around international teams, and why this is more of an opportunity than a danger, and also lets various voices from the network have their say, talking about their experiences in international teams.
