    Обявата е интересна. Аз пуснах документи за позицията в Committee 1. Но ми е интересно дали ние българите имаме някакъв шанс кандидатствайки за такива отворени конкурси. Особено що се отнася за Белгия, например, където на практика ни броят за non-EU на трудовия пазар. След като за да наемат нашенец трябва да докажат че никой от техните не може да отговори на изискванията, струва ли си труда изобщо да се кандидатства? Или не гледат толкова снизходително към нас?
