“At Daikin, we choose to attend career fairs to search for students who stand out, and who we believe that, if we develop right from the start, can become a vital resource and asset to us. We also the same opportunity to introduce students to our company, and show them what opportunities we can provide should they join us”, commented Rana Awadalla, HR Learning & Development Coordinator at Daikin.
