Hello. My boyfriend, who is a EU citizen, has been working in Romania for 6 months. I'm in Canada. How difficult would it be for me to move and work there? I only know English. What are my options? I'm skilled as an Administrative Assistant, customer service and sales. Thanks

There are some Romanians that speak English, but you will not find it used in everyday living. Some of the young are more likely to speak quite good English. Most people over 40 may not speak very much English. Being that you only speak English, I doubt there is any customer service jobs in Romania you could fit into. I am not sure you can work anyway. I think you need to get work Visa before you are allowed to work for money. I understand they might have some volunteer programs that would allow you to stay in the country by doing volunteer work for NO pay. And since you are not married to the EU citizen, It might be difficult to stay over 90 days. Under EU rules if you can prove he is your civil partner for a provable amount of time, he may be able to get you in and perhaps work, but I am not sure doing what, as at the very least you would need Romanian along with the English language. It is different if an American / Canadian English speaker travels there as a tourist, you certainly can get by. I spent several long trips over there, had a rented apartment for a time, BUT, I have both US and EU passports. I have several Romanian friends that live there, and every one of them speak English very well along with other languages, and of course Romanian. Maybe a few solutions: Get new Boyfriend in Canada OR Have Boyfriend move to Canada, OR get a crash course in Romanian and marry the guy.

Hi, it is great that you have a good qualification and speak fluently english.
In romania many international companies have production facilities or offices. If you would be emplyed you would automatically get a working visa, usually for 6 to 12 month.

Another thing to watch out for on these forums is people offering any kind of consulting or contacts with Lawyers. What they really want is into your wallet.

Try a telephone call center, if you are allowed to work. They use all languages
