ECPMF is seeking helpers for their first conference, with those who speak English and German preferred, but also speakers of Russian, Turkish and Arabic. Some paid positions are available for those who can work 2-3 days.
We open our regular jobs post as usual today, with some new individual job ads we’ve come across. We follow that with descriptions and links to the respective job sections of companies we have found are hiring for various positions in Leipzig and nearby. We’ve also included, at the end of the post, a couple of recruiters/search engines that list some vacancies often without naming the specific companies. We ask you to send us any relevant job ads you might find to email@example.com, subject line #ExpatJobs.
Two Sundays ago, we decided to start running a jobs post on LeipGlo in response to complaints by international people regarding the limited accessibility to info on available positions in and around Leipzig. Readers’ reaction was very positive, and we have included suggestions for job ads here. We also feature some student jobs and an English-teaching job ad this time, besides a wide variety of full-time positions. Please send any job links you may come across to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line #ExpatJobs.
One of the things that I’ve heard international people in Leipzig complain about the most has been the lack of access to information on jobs, leading many to think that the local job market is extremely limited and that therefore they should leave. With that in mind, we’ve decided to run a post two Sundays per month with location-relevant job ads we run across on the Internet. If you hear of any other job offers, please pass them along to us at email@example.com, subject line #ExpatJobs. For our next installment, we are seeking to start running a list of available English-teaching jobs in Leipzig and university positions as well.
It’s not necessarily easy to land an internship with the United Nations system. And it’s not only because it’s competitive and you often need to “be at the right place at the right time” or “know the right people,” but also because it’s expensive. Luckily, I had a scholarship that covered my Master studies tuition and basic living expenses, as well as some savings I had accrued over the past decade. I’d say go in with an open mind, and primarily the desire to meet interesting people from various countries and get to know new places. Everything else would be a bonus.
