Financial Considerations
Life in Belgium and its capital, Brussels, is expensive, but the city is more affordable than other European capitals.
Work Permits/Visas
As a member country of the Schengen Agreement, Belgium's visa application process, particularly for short visits (those less than three months), is straightforward.
Resume/CVs
In Belgium, a résumé/CV (curriculum vitae) is usually two pages in length, but it may extend to a maximum of three pages, depending on the jobseeker's years of experience.
Interviewing Advice
Belgians are modest by nature and dislike what may be seen as bragging, jobseekers must be careful with how they present their talents.
Cultural Advice
Belgians tend to be rather formal and shake hands at the beginning and end of each interaction, both when meeting someone for the first time and when leaving a meeting.
Business and Networking
Belgium has many trade, professional and social networking organizations.
Business Management and Marketing
In terms of marketing, Belgium is an attractive test market for multinationals because of its diversity, acceptance of foreign products and transport connections to Europe.
