Human Resources

In the first quarter of the 21st century, unemployment is one of the most serious problems encountered by such developing countries as Turkey. Turkey is a country where employment opportunities for most of the qualified new employees are very limited. Today, the world experiences information society processes resulted from the profound changes in the information and communication technologies.
