WLSV: Hiring Trends in Localization

? Date: Thursday, August 18, 2022

⏰ Time: 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM PST

? Location: Online


In this engaging event, we will discuss recent hiring trends in localization.

Some topics that we would like to discuss about include: Is the location of candidates still not very important? How do companies retain talents in the period of “mass resignation”, any changes hiring managers are seeing? Any specific measures to avoid any biases in hiring? How strong is the job market for localization professionals during economic downturns?

We will also leave enough time for Q&A, grab the chance to ask your top questions regrading hiring!
