Attracting and Developing Talent: A LocWorld Initiative

Home/Attracting and Developing Talent: A LocWorld Initiative
The corona virus pandemic is weighing on us all now – personally and professionally. The LocWorld team is well and we hope you are, also.
Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.

The Attracting and Developing Talent initiative continues its efforts to work on solutions to the challenges of attracting and educating professionally trained staff in the localization industry to confront the talent shortage. Meetings in 2016 brought together academics, clients and recruiters to understand the needs of each other and match academic curricula to industry needs. Meetings at LocWorld Barcelona and LocWorld Silicon Valley in 2017 will focus on how to improve the visibility of the localization industry and its career opportunities. The meetings will bring together educators, marketing and public relations people, and industry leaders to develop steps to increase the attractiveness of localization careers.

This meeting is by invitation only. If you would like to be added to the session, please contact Kris Wiegand and provide some background about yourself and your interest in participating.
