  • Summer jobs in Greece FAQ
    like There s no way to know exactly where to go because there might be a ton of jobs in one place this week but by the time you get here next month they might all be gone That s why it s best to show up early in the season not in June or July How do I find a well paid summer job in Greece If there were one way or one employer wouldn t we all be doing it Summer jobs in Greece are notoriously low paid unless you currently work at the year round location and or have connections to the boss Newcomers will have a difficult time even finding employment let alone a job with a decent salary Are there a lot of summer job classified ads this year Like every year there are a great number listed But of 1 000 ads only a few may be in English The majority are in Greek newspapers which basically means they are all legal jobs for anyone who can speak Greek and has authorization permit to work in Greece This reflects what I said earlier about the job climate being different due to laws enforcement and fines The few ads in English almost always want someone speaking both Greek and English and are nearly always jobs that Greeks don t take because the position company or salary is undesirable They depend on the desperation and willingness of foreigners who need money and will accept substandard working conditions Where can I find ads for illegal jobs Illegal jobs won t be advertised in regular newspapers unless employers who place them want to be visited by the Financial Crimes Squad Some employers post in unknown forums and see who comes to them but I question the quality of these jobs Most employers with illegal jobs wait for candidates to come see them in person Should I post in a forum No Why not Because getting a summer job or any job requires that you apply for open vacancies offered by bars cafes and hotels that are actually looking for people Good employers don t have time to search forums for candidates write down everyone s name address and phone number then spend the time and money on an international call to give you a job They figure if you want the job badly enough you will take action and the initiative to contact them If you don t there are plenty who will If employers do have time to troll forums for candidates and call you I would seriously question the character of the employer and the quality of the job Are you saying I shouldn t answer a job for Greece advertised in a forum No I m saying you shouldn t post your own details asking for a job There s nothing wrong with answering an ad from someone who says they have a job vacancy Do you know anyone who has gotten a summer job in Greece by leaving their name phone number or email in a forum No Not a single person in the 15 years I ve been here Everyone I know who got a summer job in Greece has applied to an ad by phone or showed up in person I know people who were promised jobs via email or phone but then showed up only to find the employer had hired someone else who was physically here in Greece and willing to work for cheap As there were no contracts or anything legally binding the employers to keep these promises these people then had to find work somewhere else or go home Most ended up going home when funds ran out because they had no backup plan or savings and had come too late to find anything else Is speaking English enough Sometimes sometimes not Some hotels or bars with a predominantly English speaking clientele don t mind if you can t speak another language or if you re applying for a position in which you have very little contact with customers i e IT technician barman taking orders only from waitresses who all speak English DJ etc It s helpful if you speak some Greek because Greeks go on vacation in summer and are not required to speak English in their own country Most people I know who got summer jobs in Greece very easily are multilingual Nikos was hired immediately because he spoke German and Kos is a popular destination for Germans George speaks English Greek and Italian and was hired immediately on Skiathos I worked in Rhodes for a summer speaking mostly English but sometimes Greek Spanish and French The only person I know who didn t speak another language and had no experience ever working in a bar restaurant was a girl who had enormous bre sts you can draw your own conclusions from that See The importance of speaking Greek in Greece Will a summer job come with accommodation There is a trend to not offer it anymore but it depends on what you find and if there is room to negotiate Alex and I both had accommodation and food included with our jobs but George and Nikos did not Christy got food but still had to pay for her own apartment Is it easier for women to find summer jobs in Greece Yes especially if you are under 30 and attractive Some ads specifically state an age limitation because younger women are perceived to be easily controlled and more willing to accept certain conditions and lower pay while also appealing to men of all ages Men find jobs too so don t be discouraged by this news I m planning to be in Greece in June can I still find a summer job Like I ve said before all of the good jobs are secured through connections or advertised and gone by April or May But it s not impossible if you re not picky

  • Job ads in Greece vs. other countries
    Don t Place An Ad Yourself Employers with any sort of reputation or credibility do not seek out employees this way they place ads and let potential candidates come to them Be suspicious of an employer approaching you on the street or calling you if you do place an ad How desperate is this person How good can this job be if it cannot be filled by professional means Does someone on the street know your qualifications No so don t you think this proposition has some personal motivation Think about it Most of the stories I hear are from women who had nothing but boys and men contact them for a date or practice English with a f0reign girl It is a waste of money and time and it invites pred tors of different types to make contact or meet you Are you willing to take that risk Are you willing to have your privacy invaded and waste your precious time money on sms and calls that are likely not from employers Photo from pegasus gr Jump start your job search You can start your job search with the links I ve provided in the third column by scrolling down to the heading Jobs Homes and Auto Ads in Greece and clicking anything that interests you To avoid confusion across nationalities I don t use the terms job classifieds or mikres aggelies little notices I just refer to them as ads Many sites are bilingual with the best jobs usually listed in Greek Related posts Common jobs for foreigners in Greece Myth vs reality Examples of jobs and salaries in Athens Greece Job interviews a la Greece Permalink 15 Comments graffic wrote August 20th 2007 at 02 50 Hi again I guess today I ll visit all the posts in your blog Ok I ll talk about my experience with Don t Agree to Perform Tasks for Free I m an IT guy looking for a job here Bsc Master working experience in my country but no experience here and low greek knowledge One week ago I went to an interview with a company in Athens They were part of an UK travel agency and they wanted a programmer The guy in the interview told me that in my CV I can say whatever but I have to show it off So he sent me a test to do in one week I guess my mind was neglecting the idea of that guy tricking me But after he sent me the test a lot of questions went into my head I ll tell you how this finishes but after reading your article I m not very optimistic Kat wrote August 20th 2007 at 07 19 Hi there I d love to know how this turns out because it d be nice to know that your risk paid off in a positive way I have several friends who interviewed for IT jobs and the boss asked about their skills much like your situation then tested them but it was done in the office on the spot with another tech watching and had a time limit an hour or so But 99 of techs I know were interviewed and hired without such testing When they get on the job it becomes very clear very quickly if the person lied and the boss has no hesitation to fire them graffic wrote September 1st 2007 at 15 27 The end of the story I sent them the report They didn t answer in a week After that they phoned me Them We didn t receive the report we have problems with the email Me ok I uploaded it also to your server so pick it from there Them From my account I cannot access yours Me You have my username and password for the server you sent it to me and you didn t let me change it so use it Them Ah Another week and no answers I contacted them and they told me We will send you an email tomorrow That was 5 days ago PIC wrote September 1st 2007 at 15 45 Graffic Too bad you couldn t put in a code that won t allow them to use the info you created after a few days That way if they are legit they wouldn t use the info anyways because that would be unethical And if they are unethical and try to use your work sneaky they wouldn t be able to utilize your work FMS wrote April 10th 2008 at 19 58 Apart from anything else it is illegal in EU countries to specify age or gender unless these form a reasonable part of a job requirement Not that this deters Greek advertisers of course Pat wrote April 10th 2008 at 19 29 As a side note I visited Thailand in 1995 And there I saw english job ads specifying women between the ages of 18 30 for receptionist jobs No mention of minimum typing speed in the ad So for all the realities of Greece at least you didn t fall in love with Thailand Kat Reply April 10th 2008 at 20 31 Maybe you should read my story One day on the island of Ios You ll see that it happens here too The Scorpion wrote April 11th 2008 at 08 32 FMS if what you say is true can someone with time on their hands pursue this in court just to make a point Or would this result in nothing Kat wrote April 11th 2008 at 10 49 I said in my post that it has been illegal for some time so FMS is correct One would first lodge a complaint with the Greek ombudsman because the violation happened in Greece If he doesn t do something you can then go higher to the EU with Solvit The processes are detailed under the category Where to file complaints on this site If you actually work
