How To Find Work in Hungary

Before you start packing your bags and kissing your mom or sweetheart goodbye, realize this - looking for work in Hungary, involves more than just the obvious Hungarian CV writing and translation, it requires in depth preparation.
You have to show that you are flexible, culturally sensitive, able to adapt to new circumstances and cultures, and that you possess some determination and motivation (for the job, not the location!).
Applying for work in Hungary has changed dramatically over the past few years, thanks to mass CV distribution services, online recruitment databases and opportunities to email work search applications.
A foreign individual (i.e., one who is not a Hungarian permanent resident or citizen), who intends to work in Hungary is typically required to possess a work permit or other authorisation to legally do so.Most visits to Hungary are trouble-free but you should be aware of the global risk of indiscriminate international terrorist attacks, which could be against civilian targets, including places frequented by foreigners.
When applying for work in Hungary, you may use either Hungarian or other foreign language, depending on the company and your fluency. There are many positions in Hungary that require professionals who are fluent in English and who can speak Hungarian at the business conversation level. Although Hungarian language is not essential, a sound working knowledge of the language is considered necessary to cope with daily office life and life outside work.
Many people believe that having studied the Hungarian language at school or college means you are able to speak that language – but do not be mistaken. Having to convince your boss in a language that is not your native tongue could prove a lot more difficult than you might expect. So, sign-up for Hungarian classes as it will give you an obvious advantage when applying for work in Hungary.
The Internet is now the best place to access employment information. However, it is always best to use as many different work search sources as possible to find open positions.
While job advertisements appear in the national and local press, some Hungarian jobs are not advertised at all. In fact more than half of all jobs are not advertised at all and are filled through referrals or networking. We refer to this as the "hidden job market" and it is a very important aspect in the work search process in Hungary.
With work in Hungary, quite often, it is not what you know but whom you know

This type of interpersonal recommendation is generally difficult for expatriates to access, but they can get around it by joining one of many networking groups upon their arrival in the country.
Remember, that after the days of communism, Hungary is establishing their own national recruitment habits. Recruiters shift from the selection based on academic criteria to skills and qualities.
