Estonia is considered to be ahead of the curve when it comes to digital tech, and they're picking up the mantle with the debut of a recruitment campaign entitled Career Hunt, alongside multiple major IT companies. The initiative seeks to cast a wide net over Europe for tech specialists and hopefully garner them into senior positions at larger firms in need of talent.
Estonia wants to give highly skilled tech-talents, who are open to moving to Estonia, an opportunity to come and experience the possibilities that Estonian tech scene offers, before deciding to relocate.

The international job search portal Jobbatical will help employers find suitable candidates and conduct preliminary interviews.
