On Dec. 8 and 9, Hydro Review and HYDROVISION International will be hosting two webcasts that will address hydropower market trends globally.
The live, complimentary HYDRO+ monthly series of virtual events brings together the hydro community through live content, match-making, networking and an engaging virtual experience for those looking for perspective and discussion on current and future issues affecting the hydroelectric power and dams markets.
We are excited to be hosting Hiring for Hydro, a two-day recruiting and educational event designed to cater to new workforce entrants and those looking for insight on hiring, attracting and retaining new talent, as well as current market trends. In the past, we have partnered with the Hydropower Foundation on Hiring for Hydro at HYDROVISION International. Because we cannot be in person until mid-2021, we are working together to deliver this event to support the needs of the hydro community virtually.
The two sessions are:

In this session, hiring managers and students seeking to join the hydropower industry will discuss — from their unique perspectives — what is involved in attracting, hiring and retaining the next generation of the hydro workforce. This session will provide valuable insights for anyone hiring, looking to enter the industry or even considering a job change.
