начальник отдела рекрутинговой компании ANCOR Central Asia Оксана Ткаченко“The demand for metallurgists, oilmen, programmers, machine builders demonstrates a smooth growth. It is facilitated by both urbanization of processes and market development as a whole due to foreign players. That is why foreign language knowledge is certainly a competitive advantage, and this tendency will be continuing in the near future.
