The European Commission has created various online tools to help you find a job for during or after your studies and to present your skills and qualifications throughout Europe.
EURES job portal
The European cooperation network of employment services - EURES job portal - allows you to search for a specific job type filtered by country, language, level of required education and more. You can also find
- information about living and working conditions in different countries, including for cross-border commuters
- descriptions of labour market situations
- publications and articles about different topics related to employment mobility
- announcements for international job fairs to meet employers directly
EURES provides this information on 27 European Union (EU) countries, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
Once you’ve found a suitable opportunity, to successfully apply you will need to present your skills, qualification and experience in a clear and concise manner. For this, you can use Europass.
Europass helps learners, workers and jobseekers across Europe to effectively communicate their skills and qualifications.
It’s a useful tool to build your CV and cover letters, to gather your certificates and diploma supplements together in one place.
Create a personal profile and reflect on your skills, detail your experience, provide supporting evidence in a familiar format.
EU Blue Card
Don’t forget that as an non-EU citizen, you may need additional documentation, such as the EU Blue Card to work in an EU country after graduation.
Don’t leave it to the last minute to arrange a visa and/or work permit!
