2. Education centers
But what happens after students finish college? Are they ready to work? They have spent 4 years learning theoretically, but they lack the practical knowledge and the skills it takes to start working in the real world.
That is why a lot of education centers have been opened in the last few years that are focused on creating well-trained professionals who will learn not only theoretical but also a lot of practical content that will in the end help them be competitive in the market. It is a great option for people willing to build up their knowledge and become even more qualified and work ready.

Learning from professionals who have been in the industry for quite a while is a great opportunity for everyone willing to build a successful career.
These education centers have proven that creating educated and well-trained staff with the right program and the right teachers can be done in 3 to 9 months. It is a win-win situation for companies as well as students. The first ones get a skilled, ready-to-work staff and the latter get a great job. A job that will help them create value and help companies in Europe be the best that they can and get the greatest value for money.
3. High English language proficiency
Do you have trouble finding an outsourcing partner that possesses English proficient staff?
North Macedonia is known to have a high rate of English proficient people. Children start learning English from three years old and are surrounded with English cartoons, songs, games etc. Besides that every primary and secondary school in North Macedonia has English as a mandatory subject, and also a lot of education centers that offer English and Business English courses are available in every city in the country.
So you don’t have to worry about the communication and correspondence with your partner. We speak your language and one of the reasons why more and more USA and European companies decide to look for outsourcing partners in our country is the ease of communication and the high proficiency we have to offer. No more difficulties hearing strange accents and reading documents, just professional high-level business communication.
4. Two hours away from most European cities
Do you want to be 2 hours flight away from your partner? Would you like to be all the time in control of what is happening with your projects? Do you want timely updates – at the fraction of the second of any issue? This is where location matters.
Being located in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, North Macedonia is the perfect spot to start looking for your next outsourcing partner.

Additionally, low-cost airlines, such as Wizzair and the great number of destinations that can be reached within few hours keep your costs low. You can visit your partner whenever and wherever you want, and get things sorted out.
And moreover, the time zone, it is also about the time zone… You don’t really want to have to get up early or stay late at night to have a one-hour meeting. Being in the same time zone as your partner makes this all easier and smoother – meetings within working hours and free time for you and your family.
