AstraQom is much more than a provider of communication services
While we thrive on researching and developing new technologies to transcend geographic barriers, we commit to the communities we serve and we are highly engaged in their development.
Labour market still relies on level of education
According to OECD, over 80% of adults with tertiary education are employed, compared to 70% of the people with secondary education and less than 60% without even a secondary education, an indication that the labour market still relies on level of education to be the primary indicator of an employee’s skills.
