Work in Europe

To work in most EU countries, you will need a work visa if you’re a Non-EU citizen. You have to meet the criteria and requirements set by the European countries to get your work permit. Each of the EU countries has its own policies and application process that may differ from another country.

Things you need to know before working in EU contry

Europe's foreign language skills

You need to establish that your abilities transcend those of your rival if you wish to compete effectively with local employees in Europe. For many occupations fluency is needed in the local language, and working knowledge of French, Spanish, German or Spanish will boost your career opportunities substantially. Many international enterprises are also seeking for individuals in American or English. Bear in mind, however, that fewer multinationals are aiming to expand their activity abroad in times of economic recession.

Do your homework in Europe before you decide

Each nation has its own methods and a work-seeker etiquette. It is preferable to know more about the intricacies of the job application procedure early rather than learn from your own blunders. Buy your country’s book on life and work or browse the Web, to collect as much information as you can. The procedure of applying for a job differs between countries. Many European nations have extremely bureaucratic and rigorous requirements including formal certifications and diplomas confirming their training, training and prior job experience, which sometimes require certified local language translations. The new EU Blue Card offers some pathways to work in Europe for people from selected countries, including the U.S.

Highly skilled workers' well-paid jobs in Europe

Professional talents in the target country, which are highly sought after, is one means of getting a job offers from a European business and transferring from corporations located in Europe with offices in the USA. Unfortunately, Americans have a major disadvantage over Europeans in seeking employment in the European Union, due to tight labour legislation. Citizens of the EU can work without a work permit in any EU Member State, while Americans require the work visa sponsor. And even if you are lucky enough to get a job offer in the EU, your employment contract still needs to be approved by the respective Labor Department, which will determine if you are the best candidate and if your position could also be filled by a local candidate. However, most European countries have shortages of skilled professionals in certain fields, such as engineering, information technology, healthcare, and teaching. If you fall into this group, your work permit application will be expedited, and you have a strong opportunity to receive your approval. Furthermore, protection against laying off your employment when you do a job as a trained professional is much stricter than in the United States due to labour legislation protecting employees. As previously noted, in or with subsidiaries in Europe, many multinationals have the skills, job and a profitable expat package when speaking the language are available.

Internship in Europe

There are paid traineeships for young people, regardless of academic standing, given by firms and organisations around Europe. See the Europe area of our Internships. Although BUNAC offers internships in England, most trainings are centred in Spain, some in Italy and Germany. Often a price is involved with an internship but, in terms of establishing an international curriculum, the investment may well be worth the money to prospective employers at home and abroad at a point when unpaid internships are so popular among college graduates in the US.

European language teaching English

Due to decreasing demand or an overabundancy of trained English-speaking instructors, the work market for English teachers in Western and Central Europe has deepened in recent years. At addition to a college, a TEFL or CELTA certification is needed in many language institutions and schools across Europe, as in more and more places across the world. English speakers who are already citizens or legal residents typically prefer, although there are exceptions in European education. But non-EU people still have a high chance of finding an English education employment in the new EU Member States in Eastern Europe.

Freelancers' Visas

As Europe’s population rapidly ages, there is a constant demand for young entrepreneurs and professionals who can inject new ideas and entrepreneurial skills into European economies, either by opening businesses or by working as highly skilled self-employed professionals. If you fall in this category, you do not need a job offer. All you need is to demonstrate exceptional professional skills and enough funds to get started. Europe’s major economies all offer such programs. Germany has enacted a ban on recruiting foreign labour for unskilled and less-skilled workers, and even for the most skilled workers. However, the government still allows self-employed professionals to live and work in Germany if your planned business or activity is expected to have a positive economic effect. There is always the option for digital nomads to create blogs and websites allowing them to sustain themselves while living in Europe. The key is navigating the EU and independent visa process — which has been accomplished by many but is no easy task in this era of protectionism.
