Join Us at Career Hive – the Forum for Bulgarians with International Experience Looking for Opportunities Back Home 

The event will give companies the opportunity to remotely talk to candidates who are currently not in Bulgaria


Over 1,500 Bulgarians with international experience who are looking for professional development opportunities back home will attend Career Hive – the biggest event targeted specifically at Bulgarians with work or educational qualifications abroad.

The event will take place on September 4, 2019 at Inter Expo Center and will be held under the patronage of the President of Bulgaria Rumen Radev.

The organizers, Tuk-Tam, are building upon their solid foundation of 11 years of experience in organizing career focused events, starting this new initiative. Career Hive is the ideological continuation to the emblematic “Career in Bulgaria. Why not?” event which the NGO co-organized from 2008 to 2018.

Over 90 leading companies will attend, seeking to engage with Bulgarian professionals who are looking for career development back home. There will also be a varied seminar program with 12 sessions and over 20 speakers and leaders from the business, NGO and the public sectors. Besides the expected (yet important) HR consultations, job offers and on-the-spot interviews, this year the Career Hive will give companies the opportunity to remotely talk to candidates who are currently not in Bulgaria.

Career Hive 2019 also marks the beginning of Tuk-Tam’s efforts to encourage both companies and candidates alike to be a part of a more sustainable ecosystem. It is on a journey to becoming a zero-waste event, already reducing its impact on the environment.
