Whether you've just graduated or already have some work experience at home, you can make your career anywhere in Europe – if you're willing to try a new country.
Aside from the professional benefits, working abroad can give you new personal skills and cultural insights, including possibly the chance to learn a new language.
Where can I work?
As an EU national, you're entitled to work – without needing a work permit – in any EU country, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland.
However, there are always certain conditions you need to be aware of when working and living in another country.
And if you're a national of Bulgaria or Romania, the EU's newest members, you may also be subject to certain transitional rules.
