    I worked at ACCION International


    Great colleagues! Nice and smart! Make you feel being part of families. Some former colleagues become lifetime friend


    Many Hiring managers do not really know how to interview people and how to manage the team. They need to be trained on human resources for non HR manager. Hr department need more knowledge in HR global practice.
