During this period, the European labour market continued to be strongly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. A discussion on labour shortages and surpluses in times of the pandemic is therefore also included.

Living and working in another country is an exciting option for Europeans of all ages. Indeed, more and more people are recognising the benefits of gaining professional experience in another European country. Even so, still only 3 % of Europeans live and work in a different Member State than their country of origin. Yet by working abroad, even for short periods, you can greatly increase your skill levels and boost your chances of finding a better job in your own country.

As a result, there are endless opportunities for the motivated and mobile jobseeker. And if you need advice and information along the way, there are also plenty of experts to guide you.
