searching for a job,


Dear all,
I'm a european student living and studying in Belgium. I want to obtain a workpermit for my boyfriend who lives in Afghanistan and who is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA UK). I dont know which firms in accounting and finance recruit international employees. Can anyone help me out with this? Any tip would be welcome. Thanks in advance.


Have you tried using the usual public job search websites?
Any company looking for an accountant and prepared to employ someone on a work-permit basis without local language skills would be advertising such a vacancy.

if you want a job in Belgium, you must be 21 years old, have your Master's Degree, have no more than 6 months experience (so they dont have to pay you) willing to work for free for 2 years...and speak French, English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese...and if you are very lucky they will allow you to empty the company trash cans....they wont actually pay you more than 1500 euros a month, but they will give you free massages, reduced prices on sandwiches, and plenty of compliments

and when you are 41 years old they will reward you for your twenty years of service by asking you to LITERALLY apply for YOUR own job....i'm not kidding either
