The event is open to all workers from the EU, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland at their first work experience abroad. The 50 winners will be assisted in all steps of their experience by the EURES network, and workers will be invited to record their impressions through a blog or an electronic diary.
A joint celebration organised in 2008 will gather together all participants and host organisations to exchange ideas and experiences and draw a first lesson of the initiative.
You can apply for ‘Your First Job Abroad’ through the EURES web site from September 24 to October 15 2007.
With its network of more than 700 advisers that are in daily contact with jobseekers and employers across Europe, EURES provides not only job placements but also direct assistance to workers and their families.
