To find a job in Luxembourg, it is helpful to register as a jobseeker with the Employment Administration (ADEM). It offers registered jobseekers support and passes them job offers.
In order to increase your chances of finding a job quickly, it is recommended that you also seek employment independently.
One way to do so is to send spontaneous applications to companies active in the sectors in which you have qualifications and experience and/or in which you wish to work. On the internet, there are many spontaneous application and CV samples. Whilst these samples can be used as inspiration for the structure and type of information to be mentioned, it is however essential to find out information in advance about the company you are applying to and tailor the job application. Certain services offer free assistance in writing CVs and covering letters.
In addition to spontaneous applications, it is worth consulting Luxembourg’s daily newspapers (see media section) to find out about vacant positions. Generally, Saturday’s editions contain the most job offers¡. In addition to the written press, there are many websites on which jobseekers can consult offers, and even publish their CV in order to attract the attention of employers. Below you will find a non-exhaustive list of these sites:
