I will soon be unemployed from my job at the European Commission, where I work as a contract agent.
Has anyone else been through the administrative steps required for unemployment benefits? It is very confusing, and when I called the PMO they just directed me to their document available online-I complained, but the woman kept repeating the same thing over again-go to the document, go to the document.
I live in Woluwe Saint Pierre, and if I understand correctly, do I need to register with Actiris or CAPAC? I don't want to work in the next year-I'm considering going back to university for an M.A. to improve my skills set and to continue preparing for open competitions. I want to choose the option that will allow me to do this as best as is possible.
Also, I am interviewing for new positions at different Institutions, so I'd like to keep this option open too (It wouldn't be right to take on a job and leave shortly after because I'm offered a job at the Institutions). Any how, this is my plan for the next year-I'll probably have to re-enter the Belgian job market in case I don't get a job within the next year.
But I have a plan and would like to pursue it-any tips on what I should do?
