Guest post by Matt Mills from Europe Language Jobs
Taking time out to work or study abroad is becoming more and more popular. Programmes like Erasmus, combined with the decreasing cost of travel, has meant that people are taking the European plunge and pushing their professional boundaries.
Employers also value the experience that candidates gain from living and working in a foreign country. If you can learn a new language, such a valuable skill adds a great deal to your CV and it opens countless doors. However, in reality your native language may be your ticket to a dream job in a cool new city. There are plenty of amazing destinations to choose from throughout Europe, and it’s never too late to challenge yourself and embark on a new adventure.
Using the job board Europe Language Jobs, we have compiled a list of various jobs in 6 of Europe’s most alluring cities. Could you see yourself in one of these positions, or places?
