1200 job offers in 2017

Candidates can submit their CVs online beforehand on the Pro&Mer exhibition website. The main objective is to facilitate recruitment, says Lise Hermite. "It is a little early to give a number of vacancies. In 2017, we had reached 1,200 job offers at the show. The aim is to limit the CV barrier.
