Study: Romanians want to work abroad; almost two million applications for jobs abroad

Romanians want to work abroad is the conclusion of a study published on Monday by an online recruitment platform, which revealed almost two million applications have been recorded for jobs abroad since the beginning of this year, Germany, the UK and the Netherlands being among the most desired destinations among the candidates for a job in another country than Romania.

"The jobs that the online recruitment platform eJobs has available abroad gathered almost two million applications so far this year, with most candidates having between 25 and 35 years old (approximately 855,000 such applications recorded). The next significant category interested to work abroad is represented by the very young candidates who have just started their professional life, with zero or minimum experience on the labour market. These are young people between 18 and 24 years old, who made 450,000 applications, overall," according to the study posted by eJobs.

Surprisingly, the candidates aged between 36 and 45 years old are not that far away from the previous age categories, with a total of 385,000 applications for jobs abroad corresponding to this category. On the other hand, the most stable candidates on the labour market, those who are more than 45 years old are also those who are not that quick in deciding to go abroad for work - with a total number of 227,000 applications recorded in this age category this year.

The same source revealed that most of those who want a career abroad prefer to remain in Europe. Germany is the country most candidates seem to be interested to work in, with jobs available in this country recording a little more than 100,000 applications. Germany is followed by the UK, at a short distance, and also by the Netherlands, France, Poland, Belgium and Spain, which are the next countries the Romanian job seekers are interested in.

Among the most looked for fields were sales, followed by banks, financial-accountancy, nutrition/HoReCa and management.
