Work and Study
Finding work for foreigners without special skills is difficult even though 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 a 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. Hence, it is very unlikely that you will be lucky to contact them while you are in Prague. Prague also attracts workers (often working without a proper visa) from Central & East European states, plus former Soviet countries like Ukraine. According to statistic, 290 000 foreigners were working in the Czech Republic as of 1 December 2008.
