Meet employers and find out about working in other EU countries through seminars and workshops in Brussels, 6 October 2012. Register to participate in person or online.

Hundreds of Job Days take place throughout the year all over Europe. They present an ideal opportunity for school-leavers, graduates and people with work experience to find out what jobs are available in other European countries.

The main event is European Job Day in Brussels on Saturday, 6 October, from 10.00 to 17.00 at the Commission’s Berlaymont headquarters.

Jobseekers have the chance to be interviewed on the spot by employers from across Europe. You can also get information and tips on looking and applying for jobs in other EU countries. Advisors from the EURES online job portal will be on hand to help you hone your search.

Registering for Job Day

There is no fee for taking part in Job Day – whether you come in person or take part online. Just register online and upload your CV. You can also specify what kind of jobs you're interested in so that prospective employers can view your CV in advance. If you're coming in person, bring some paper copies with you, to hand to employers at the event.

More than 60 companies will be present in Brussels to talk to potential candidates. Around 2 000 jobs are on offer at the event.

If you can't make it to Brussels, register to take part online. Then on the day of the event you can contact employers or EURES advisers directly by using a chat, audio or video connection. About 70 companies have signed up to connect with jobseekers across Europe.

You can also watch live streamed presentations and put questions to panellists.

This year's Job Day focuses on the growth sectors that the Commission identified in its April 2012 package of recommendations, namely the green economy, healthcare and the digital economy.

Last year, the Brussels Job Day attracted around 10 000 jobseekers. Employers collected about 6 000 CVs and 700 visitors were contacted for a second interview.
