Nearly 500 qualified workers participate in the Journées Québec event in Barcelona

The Journées Québec event in Barcelona made it possible for Québec businesses to meet qualified workers.

On November 29, 2012, Barcelona hosted its first ever Journées Québec event. This event was an international recruitment mission for 35 Québec businesses looking for qualified workers. More than 1,000 positions in the engineering, information technology and communications, health, aerospace and metal manufacturing sectors needed to be filled.

At the first Journées Québec event in Barcelona, nearly 500 applicants were invited to meet one or more of the employers. Many of them received firm offers, while others were invited to a second interview.

Whereas the seventh Journées Québec event was held in France this year, it was the very first in Spain. Since this event was initially launched, over 10,000 job interviews have been conducted.

The Journées Québec event in Barcelona was held just 9 months after the Québec and Catalonian governments signed a joint declaration of their intention to cooperate in the area of workforce mobility between Québec and Catalonia.
