There are several ways to access vacancies in EU / EEA countries as well as in Switzerland (for which EU workers are also invited to apply). You can choose between the services of the Member States' employment services, official employment services, contact foreign recruiters, build contacts through social networking sites, apply individually and proactively to companies, and use EURES. In Europe, you can also use the help of the growing members and partners of the national EURES networks of EU / EEA countries to find a job abroad.
In particular, you should start your search on the EURES portal, which is available in all EU languages and has job vacancies advertised in the Member States, where you can freely choose where you work (destination country), contract duration (direct hire, temporary or contract to hire), contract type (full-time, part-time, flexible), expected level of education or training and length of professional experience and other conditions. You can also filter the results by job title, keywords in the job description, and employer name.
EURES European Job Mobility Portal
Job vacancies appearing on the portal are collected and shared by staff from the countries participating in the EURES network, public employment services and EURES members and EURES partners registered in the EURES network. As a result, only job vacancies from real, registered companies legally operating in a given EU Member State are included in the EURES database. Here, employers cannot upload job vacancies directly, only with the help of EURES. This is a guarantee that EU workers will only be able to search for job vacancies that contain reliable, real and relevant mandatory data.
In Europe, recruitment typically takes place in the spring and autumn. This is when the largest international job fairs will take place. The EURES network organizes recruitment events across Europe, which are also open to those interested across borders. The European (Online) Job Days also include events that are online fairs, ie do not require on-site participation. This way, you can even contact foreign companies advertising jobs from home, as well as take part in online video chat interviews, all for free.
The EURES Hungary network also organizes a European Online Job Fair every autumn, which mainly offers job opportunities for Hungarian companies to Hungarian jobseekers, employees from neighboring or other EU countries, and returnees from abroad who want to work and build a career in Hungary for the first time or again. In addition, EURES is usually present at most domestic recruitment events and job fairs with an exhibitor stand. You can also find out about these events on our EURES Hungary Facebook page.
European (Online) Job Days - EOJD platform:
Are you in another country, but would you like to explore the job opportunities there as well? Nothing is simpler than that. Feel free to visit the job databases available through the portal of the official public employment organization and search freely, free of charge among the advertised jobs. As not all jobs are advertised and shared through the EURES portal, some vacancies may only be available through the public database. In order to help you get these job offers as well, we have also collected the contact details of the labor organizations and job databases of all EU/EEA countries.
Job databases of labor organizations in EU / EEA countries:
There are a number of intermediaries and recruiters in the EU that operate on a market basis, and they can also help you find a job. Although their income is earned primarily from the fulfillment of their assignments by employers, job seekers who turn to them are generally not charged for their services. However, the legislation of the Member States on intermediation and lending is very different, so that while it may be prohibited in one country, it may be allowed in another to provide services to workers for an appropriate remuneration. The same applies to the registration system. In one country, it is not enough to simply register a private broker or lender, a separate registration may be required, while in another country there is no such requirement.
The recruitment and placement market in the European Union is very large, with some major recruitment firms and agencies active in several Member States at the same time, providing customer service. There is no single European database for the search for intermediaries and lenders, so these agencies can be mapped mainly with the help of public employment bodies, company databases and search engines.
In addition to the above, there is, of course, an abundant offer from foreign career portals and social networking sites, and it is possible to send spontaneous applications to selected companies with initiative in some cases. LinkedIn, which has become an important source of recruitment for the HR profession, already has an almost unavoidable, prominent role in cross-border, international job search.
Whether you are applying for a job at home or abroad, you can be exposed to being deceived or cheated anywhere. Unfortunately, in the labor market, the good faith of applicants is exploited by promising job opportunities, and the end result is that they do not receive their wages, their working conditions are not only inadequate, but also downright dangerous, and in the worst case they can fall victim to exploitation and human trafficking.
That is why it is very important to examine the text, content and language of job advertisements and various offers with a critical eye in each case. EURES Hungary staff have in many cases been approached by workers who have been in trouble abroad, so we consider it important to prepare in advance and exercise caution.
If you are unsure about the authenticity of an ad, have doubts about the advertiser, you should first contact us for advice before applying for the job. Many times trouble is preventable.
