i am back to my native land, after 3587 days in switzerland and chad, after studies and work. no job, no (own) place, no social security, but yet motivated to find a job in this small piece of europe.
right now i got one denial after a phone interview from chad with luxembourg based amazon (which costed me 150 €). they asked me the usual java questions, like what is the difference between an interface and an abstract class, how would you implement this and that? i have another job interview at a research center in luxembourg, apparently it is going to last 5 hours.
there are many job opportunities for IT, software developers here in luxembourg, but most of them are for consulting or banking companies, which are not yet in my field of interest. a good place to look for jobs here is online at monster and jobs.lu. many companies are based in luxembourg, like ebay, skype, amazon, paypal…to name a few. but they mainly are based here in luxembourg to (not) pay their taxes. as it seems however some of them are starting some projects at their luxembourg based sites.
