Are you having troubles finding a job in Hungary?
You aren’t satisfied with your salary?
Did you get a promising job offer from abroad?
You found a great advertisement in the newspaper?
Be careful! Not everything is what it seems!
Advices to consider for employees!
- Don’t look for job offers in free newspapers! No one who needs a professoinal will look for labor in places like that!
- Don’t apply for job offers which occur several times in newpapers or ads!
- The wording and the content of the ad says a lot about the employer. Don’t apply for an offer that is full of spelling and grammatical errors.
- The ads that don’t ask for minimal knowledge of a foreign language are very dangerous!
- Avoid those ads which include unrealistic offers! For example: Job offers where they don’t expect knowledge of language or qualification but they offer potential for high income. Masseur, baby sitter, agricultural worker, housekeeping, nurse…
- Do not take a job that offers unrealistically high income!
- Before you accept a job offer, make sure that the employer is a real person. You can do this on the internet.
- If the employer asks for money for any reason when you apply for a job, then don’t accept that job offer!
- Accept the job only if you have money for travelling!
- Always use the help of an interpreter when contracting! Make sure that the contract contains the same details that you have agreed on before.
- When accepting a job abroad, always inform the consulate about the details of your travel, i.e. destination, time of arrival, and conditions of the job. Don’t leave your country without knowing the phone number of the consulate.
- Don’t give out your official documents to anyone, not even for administration! Always keep you phone with you and do not give it to anyone!
- Never ask for a debit/credit card for an open bank account, insist on using an interpreter for administration.
- Make sure that there is someone who calls you in certain intervals to check up on you. Agree a upon a certain word or phrase that can be used as a sign if you’re in trouble and need help!
- Within the EU 112 is the integrated emergency phone number.
