" It is crucial to fully commit to employment in times of crisis. This job fair therefore highlights a sector where there are still dozens of job opportunities, especially now that a series of new opportunities have been created by the arrival of several large companies. Moreover, the vacancies offer a nice mix of possibilities for both medium and high-skilled people, as well as for the more technical profiles. "
