Work and Study

Finding work for foreigners without special skills is difficult despite the fact that the unemployment rate in Prague is low. The best choice is to look for work as an English tutor (generally a degree is required but not always). Recommended websites if you are looking for job in Prague are:  www.jobs.cz  or www.expats.cz. Without proper qualifications and knowledge of the Czech language you can find seasonal work during the summer at some hostels, hotels or restaurants (best to look for a foreign-owned business like Irish pubs etc.). There are quite a lot of overseas companies which do business in Prague but they usually send their trained employees from their home headquarters so it is very unlikely that you will be lucky if you contact them while you are in Prague. The Prague also attracts workers (often working without proper visa) from Central & East European states, plus former Soviet countries like the Ukraine.  According to statistic, 290 000 foreigners were working in the Czech Republic as at 1 December 2008.
