A career in the EU institutions

A career in the EU institutions

Working for the institutions of the European Union offers university graduates with or without a Ph.D. title a variety of interesting jobs in many exciting fields, an excellent work-life-balance, a multicultural working environment, a unique job mobility, and a profitable salary.

There are many ways to kickstart a career within the EU, but the most popular one for university graduates is the so-called "Concours", the application procedure for a position as a permanent official.

In this workshop, the EU Careers Ambassador of Saarland University introduces you to career opportunities within the EU institutions, how the "Concours" works and how you can prepare for this competitive selection procedure. Subsequent to the talk, participants have the chance to try out "Concours" test questions at their own smartphone.
