Working in Belgium as an international
I am currently pursuing a master degree in global supply chain management. i have an industrial engineering diploma obtained in 2018 and i have close to 1 year experience in the oil and gas industry as field engineer. Due to my passion for supply chain management, i decided to pursue a specialization in this domain in Belgium. But i came to realize that the job market in Belgium for internationals is different to that of nationals.
last Monday, i had an interview with an international company and the interview was ended abruptly due to the fact that i was an international. No other question was asked apart from if i needed to be sponsored. the HR did bother finding out if i have the competencies required for the job, but just bothered about the fact that i needed a work permit. This made me to think on getting to know how other internationals faced this problem here in Belgium?
How do they do to get a job here?
I will be glad to hear from you guys.
