Study in Krakow, Work in Krakow
Around 130,000 business ventures operate in the city and almost 4,000 companies injected with foreign capital investing over PLN 4.6 billion. This potential alone attracts to Kraków many international corporations casting around for highly educated, strongly motivated young people as their potential employees. At the same time, an average corporate remuneration package in Kraków is lower by ca. 20% than that offered in Warsaw. While still studying at a university, undergraduates may well apply for internships in a number of companies operating within the city, which consequently gives them a tangible competitive edge on the tight labour market. If we were to construe Kraków and the neighbouring Katowice (Upper Silesia) as a single macro-region (such an approach, as well as migration in looking around for best employment opportunities, is commonplace nowadays), then their combined potential in terms of employment opportunities on offer would have a major impact. When combined with the multiple other assets offered by the city, this makes Kraków in the eyes of potential investors a particularly attractive venue in business terms, both for the employers and the workforce.
