    Hi,

    I'm an American living and working in Germany. I'd like to work in eastern Europe doing what I love, IT. Has anybody here ever successfully done that? I speak English, German and Japanese... probably neither of them are of any use in the places I want to go to (Latvia, Ukraine, Poland, etc).

    Any help would be appreciate guys.

    That could be 2 thing.

    1; You are Out of your mind.

    2; You want to get married (or already done) with a beautiful East European women. :)

    Anyway
    Most people running away from this places,(me for example)
    Only chance i could think about 1 of the big Multinational companies,
    Like......
    Hoya, Sony, etc (Japanese)
    Zeiss, Bosch, because the German language

    But the job market is very very tough. Most of the people have degree(or two), And speak at least 1-2 other language. (they have the advantage of speaking the country own language)
    So if it is hard in Germany or in the UK, East Europe is much worse, (obviously every country different so you will find a big gap between Bulgaria and Czech republic(for example).
    And as you wrote an example Ukraine. You do not want to go there i can assure you.
    I been there a couple of times, but that is a very dodge place.
    Most important:
    You want to stay within the European community.
    As close to the west as you can. Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary.
    I do not know all of these countries. But these 3 would be the best option for you.
    Or Austria, but they are not East European...
    Good luck

    Eastern Europe must be easy pickings mate.

    They're all over here doing plumbing and bricklaying.

    Speaking Japanese may well be a really strong asset to have over there.
    On the other hand, it might not.
    Sorry, don't know.

    But I can't imagine it's a great place to work, compared to say, er, America or Germany...

    :biggrin
