Slovak candidates unprepared for EU jobs

SLOVAKS applying for jobs with European institutions are poorly prepared for the application process. The main problem is a failure to pass written tests, according to a report by Deputy PM for EU affairs Pál Csáky.

As a result, Slovakia is not succeeding in filling vacancies in middle and senior management positions in EU institutions.

The situation has also been linked to a shortage of money to pay for internships at European institutions, and insufficient practical experience in the areas the candidates are applying to work in.
