• Hello!

    I'm trying to move to Budapest and have been sending CVs like crazy but despite the ones from big companies it's hard to find other job offers. Sometimes It's just a matter of luck of meeting the right people at the right time, so I'm here asking for your help in telling me if you know somone who is looking for a person who speaks portuguese and english from marketing, management and economics areas (but flexible for other opportunities).

    Thank you so much and sorry for the post! (which is not exaclty apropriate for the forum)

    Hello Lígia,

    If I were you I would aim for those companies where you can take advantage of your portugese. There are quite a few of them, and i had friends who work/used to work for them. Many of these jobs are IT related but in many cases they don't require former experience as they are so eager to find people who speak a certain language and therefore once they found them they offer a (usually already paid) training before they actually have them work. These jobs are normally boring, but they pay well, and once you got into "the system", with the money you make, you can easily make a living in Budapest.

    A few tips where some people i know used to work:
    http://www.randstad.hu/getronics_jobs
    http://www.unisys.com/unisys/countrysite/index.jsp?cid=1900002

    Also google "vodaphone" and
    "IBM" with Budapest and look if they offer jobs for portugese speakers. (I know that sometimes they do.)

    Furthermore i think for these jobs your "marketing, management and economics" background fit well.

    Also worth to try the online agencies which are specialized for recruiting people with certain languge skills. Few examples may be:
    http://www.toplanguagejobs.hu/en/
    http://www.multilingualvacancies.com/
    http://www.languagejobs.org/

    Good luck! :)
