Why do companies value an experience abroad so much? Acquiring this special talent has to do with capital gain on a personal, professional, technical or only linguistic level? In this post I will concentrate on what I have been perceiving for more than 15 years working as a headhunter, and what I consider to be the most remarkable aspect of an experience in another country: to become a better person.

Talent Assessment & Coaching
Psychological assessments help the recruiter and the proper candidate to know something more about the candidate's abilities, personality, interests or weaknesses that he/she can not (or does not want to) reveal about him or herself. Ayova Executive Search has been working since 2014 with very renown psychiatric experts to implement a new methodology assessment which combines aptitude and projective tests, and that will give both to the recruiter and the candidate new metrics to evaluate these two key factors to success in any career development: empathy and ego-drive.
