Well, this all depends. In IT we are currently looking for people in three hubs - in Amadora/Lisbon in Portugal, Budapest in Hungary and in Bangalore in India. All depends on the job descriptions and the unique fit of the job seeker.

Hi Mohamad, this depends on the country. We have local HR specialist knowing the country and rules and if you would be selected for a job we would try our best to support in getting a work visa. Prerequisite for employment however is getting the visa granted.

Hi Mohamad, it really depends on the position you apply to. Some are for more junior people and some others will require proven experience. Have a look to those available. You may find a few that fit your skills and experience.

I have experience in QA, developing in languages such as C#, JavaScript and C++, also did projects in machine learning at my university. I have already applied to several positions in Antwerp Belgium last month and still waiting to get a response. How long does the application process usually take?

Alright, I am currently finishing my studies in Electronics engineering and IT this summer. I am experienced in app development, data science and ICT from my university courses.
I believe I will require training since my work experience is still not that long. I have indeed developed apps and games using C#, C++ and JavaScript but have never worked on big projects yet since my experiences are mainly from university projects.

Hi Mohamad, it's great to see your enthusiasm. I will share your profile with the Talent Acquisition team in Antwerp/Belgium and we will evaluate your competencies also for a position in Portugal. Please continue applying to open roles. Best of luck.
