Today’s article will be on EuroBrussels.com, one of the most famous European affairs jobsites. Though it is not a news media per se, still it is a major information website in the EU online arena. So, why not review it?
EuroBrussels.com is the one of the central places to find a job or an internship in the small and very competitive world of European affairs. Launched in 2001, EuroBrussels.com has reached an important level of visibility on the Internet.
As far as I am concerned, EuroBrussels.com is updated daily and provides obviously accurate positions if you want to work in the EU affairs world. Moreover, the website has a very user-friendly interface. You can browse the website by targeted categories such as Industry Associations, EU Institutions, Law Firms and Legal, International Organisations, NGOs and Political, Consultancies, Academic and Think Tanks, Executive and Expert, Internships and Brussels Only.
One complaint might be the enhanced “Latest jobs” category (with logos) taking a lot of space on the homepage. And its just a pity that there are no RSS feeds provided. There is a newsletter sent twice a week. A very good point is also the presence of a tutorial giving some hints to the jobseeker to find an internship or a job in the Brussels’ arena (see Career Guides).
A final criticism would be that the positions offered are too focused in Brussels. It would be excellent – from a foreigner’s point of view – if you could find internships and jobs offered in EU affairs in other cities than Brussels!
EuroBrussels.com claims to have more than “800,000 page views per month and 40,000 subscribers to their weekly newsletter”. This makes the site a major force in Brussels, as it would in any other geographical market. It’s major competitor is EurActiv.com Jobsite which has recently been relaunched with an improved layout and user-friendly interface.Author : PAR
