With the unstable economy in Spain, it is hard to find a job these days. Nevertheless, when you are in love with the Spanish culture, you would do anything to take the opportunity to work in Spain!
Therefore, OnSpain School decided to write a blogpost about how to find jobs in Spain to give you a life changing opportunity! In this post we’ll give you some recommendations and tips about how to apply for a Spanish company.
First of all, we need to make sure that you have an irresistible CV in Spanish before we continue with this post. Is this not the case, then we’d like to recommend you to read our post about how to write the best CV in Spanish.
If you followed the steps shown in our post about the best CV in Spanish you are already halfway the finish! To make it a bit easier for you, we summed up the important steps in this post, so you can check if you missed a step afterwards. It is also easier to read!
- Spanish language
Speaking a popular foreign language (e.g. English, French, German, etc.) in Spain is a must have these days! More and more Spanish people speak an extra language these days, which makes it easier for foreigners to find and apply for a job in Spain. However, an extra language must come from two sides! Therefore, we recommend you to manage the Spanish language.
If you don’t speak Spanish don’t worry! There are several Intensive courses that’ll help you in this process (also for intermediate and advanced people)! By teaching vocabulary that’s used daily and communicating in Spanish during the classes, students tend to learn the language faster!
- Spanish Speakers
There are also many foreigners that already speak Spanish because they have a Hispanic background or studied it before. To perfection your Spanish language and surprise the Spanish company even more, we recommend you to learn Business Spanish. In this way you can communicate in a more professional way.
- Spanish Companies
It depends on each job interest how hard it is to find a job. Nevertheless, there are websites with vacancies that will help you out! We also recommend you to create a LinkedIn account. This business-oriented social network might help you discover other companies in Malaga where you can find your dream job! On the bottom of this blogpost we will post a few useful links that will help you find Spanish companies.
If you do not have work experiences or if you’d like to gain some experiences before applying for that one company you really want to work at, we’d recommend you to enrol for a work placement programme. In this way you will not only practice the working atmosphere at Spanish companies but it will also improve your language skills. Next to the fact that you have something more to write about on your CV!
- Elevator Pitch
An elevator pitch (also called professional pitch) is when you represent yourself to the company recruiter / CEO. This is called an elevator pitch, because you need to convince the recruiter/CEO within 60 seconds that you are the perfect match for their company.
It takes practice to perfection your pitch. Don’t forget that body language is the most important part in communication!! Watch this video about a young man convincing the audience in the first 30 seconds by using his body, the attitude and the right words!
