EMPLOYMENT NOTES

Expatriates can put resumes on data network

Expatriates looking for new work can throw their name into a giant data network called the National Placement Association (NPA) that could place you in Europe, Slovakia or in North America depending on your wish. "Our aim is to assist ex-pats to get a job wherever they want to be next," said Ron Baštyř from Personnel Select. With over 55,000 applicants in the net fishing for jobs all over the world, country specific requests - especially Europe - offer the best chances to be placed according to Jozefine Brahlik at Personnel Select. Unlike the United States, it costs nothing for those who want to test the net for jobs.
