“We took part in two recruiting missions in 2012 to hire people with IT experience—the first in Paris and Brussels in the spring and the second in Paris and Barcelona in the fall. Since project managers in Montréal work mainly for consulting firms or on their own, it is quite hard to find candidates here with the profile we are seeking. That is why we decided to recruit abroad, and in so doing, expand our pool of candidates.
We have already hired six people via this route. We are very satisfied with the help provided by the people at MI. They simplified the process for obtaining work permits, for example. We were provided with a detailed explanation of what to expect during a recruiting mission, and the results were bang on. Everything was perfectly coordinated.”
