Submitted by zannet


Get great advice on working and living as an expatriate in Bucharest, Romania.

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Bucharest

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Bucharest is mainly filled with affiliates of large, international companies. French is a popular language here, it is tought in scools. If you also take into accout the low labour costs, you get a perfect arial for supportive affiliates, such as for IT and customer support.

What type of work do you do and how did you find your job?

I work as a linguistic tester for a large gaming company in Bucharest.

I found this job thanks to AIESEC, the student exchange organization.

How did you obtain your work permit? What advice would you have for others about work permits?

Thankfully, I have an EU citizenship, which allowed me to work freely. I did need to obtain a resedence certificate though.

Needed to visit an institution with a passport, a self-purchased fiscal stamp, work conrtract and some paper from the employer.

The job can be done in just one day, if you know how. Visit the place early in the morning - take your papers in the evening.

Before that find out about the opening days and hours. Get all papers and purchase a *fiscal stamp* in a post office.

Have you taken language and cross-cultural training courses to prepare for your assignment? If so, how have they helped you on the job?

It would be impossible to get a Romanian language course where i come from, so I needed to learn some on the spot.

I must admit, that because I work in an international environment and don't do my homework in Romanian course, and my native language is quite different from Romanian language (Italians and Spanish have it easier), the anguage progress is super slow. I am stuck at the level of using numbers at the market.

Advice - Do your homework!

Oh, also the education ministry offers Romanian classes for foreigners, that are aprox. 3 months long and cost about 100 - 150 euro per month.

What advice would you offer others about finding jobs and working abroad?

It is quite easy to find a job here if you speak a widely used language, such as French, German, Russian etc. English is ad added must, ofcourse.

Upon arrival the job can be founf in 1 month.
