Although we are living in a digital age, many job openings are still not advertised publicly. Instead, they are filled through referrals and professional networking. In this article, we will share some tips on how to be an effective online networker.article111

Polish your online presence

Before you get started, make sure you update your profiles on the networking platforms that you are using. Upload a professional profile photo, write a compelling headline, job description and summary, and list your relevant achievements, experience and skills. When you are building your profile, try seeing it through the eyes of a potential employer. A long profile does not always mean a good one. Keep your information short and concise. A well-thought-out profile can be more powerful than you think.

In addition, do not forget to review your other social media channels. Potential employers and recruiters often look up candidates on social media, so it might be wise to delete any controversial posts and check your privacy settings. Search your name online to make sure you have not missed anything.

At the end of this week, wine lovers can celebrate both the Bulgarian holiday "Trifon Zarezan" and Valentine's Day.

This is a good occasion to pay attention to the top wine producers in the European Union. In order to get to the phase of producing wine, first workers are needed to harvest the grapes and create the final product. Often these are seasonal workers who come from another country. From the perspective of labour mobility, we will present you brief information about the seasonal work in the top 6 wine producers in Europe - Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Germany and Hungary.

The Covid-19 crisis posed a number of serious challenges to seasonal work. For this reason, it is necessary for workers to work legally with a labour contract and to know their labour rights in the country in which they work or want to work.

You can be part of the Dual Vocational Training Project of EURES Bulgaria and the German Federal Employment Agency. Our partners are dedicated companies in attractive regions of Germany, who are looking for motivated apprentices from Bulgaria for following qualifications:

  • Chefs / Cooks
  • Restaurant and Hotel Specialists
  • System Catering Experts
  • Butchers
  • Specialized Food Sales Assistant for Butcher Shops

The procedure for joining various organizations to the EURES network in Bulgaria continues to be active. The initiative was launched last year and three organizations have already taken advantage of this opportunity and gained the status of an accredited EURES member or partner.

In this way, the partnership circle is expanded, which provides a rich catalog of EURES services in the field of labor mobility and which participates in the exchange of jobs and profiles of jobseekers.


pic новинаToday, the EURES network launches an information and communication campaign on seasonal work, coordinated at European level by the European Labour Authority (ELA). The starting initiative is one of the three strands of ELA's wider campaign on seasonal work "Rights for all seasons", in which recently the Employment Agency in Bulgaria took part. EURES Bulgaria is also getting involved in the relevant strand of the campaign, which will last from July to October 2021. The aim will be to raise awareness among jobseekers and employers of their rights, obligations and opportunities and to support fair recruitment in Europe.

The EURES support services are also expected to be promoted so that all countries can benefit fairly from seasonal work. The focus will be on recruitment in key sectors such as agri-food, tourism, hospitality and construction. It will rely on the large scope of the EURES network, which offers its services in 31 countries and is thus supporting the free movement of workers for more than 25 years.
