Furthermore companies also do not always have these potential employees in clear view either.

Europe: a blessing or a curse? - Column by Dirk Haaksman

Elections for the European Parliament will take place on 22 May. The six months after that will revolve around the names. Who will be Euro Commissioner? Who will be President of the Parliament? And who will succeed Barroso? And leading up to the elections everyone will talk about how much money we spend on Europe. And that we don’t get anything in return. And the xenophobes will dominate the discussion. I am not looking forward to it.
