Striving for technological leadership and profits maximization, need to obtain new competitive advantages does not only stimulate the transnational companies’ demand on highly skilled professionals, but also professionals’ circulation within multinationals. In this paper multinationals are considered as global actors de facto forming the world market of highly qualified specialists. Research concentrated on the disclosure of tools used by transnational companies in attracting of professionals. The conducted analysis has revealed the growing contradiction between the transnational companies’ aggressive strategies on the pumping of highly skilled experts and the national interests of the host countries.
