Looking for a job in Europe Vs USA

There are differences when looking for a job in USA and in EMEA. These are the ones I found by myself.

Applying to a vacancy:

  • Europe: no personal questions.
  • USA: ask for gender, race, disabilities and if you are a veteran.

Relationship, recommendations

  • Europe: good, not mandatory.
  • USA: it’s key you have a recommendation inside the company or you are known by someone.

Interview:

  • Europe: do you have the right experience for the job?
  • USA: can you do the job?
