View Full Version : Americans hired in Europe?

04 April 2002, 02:40 AM
I have a general question about European development companies hiring Americans. Are there any extra concerns that would be a negative to a European company hiring a foreigner? For example having to deal with Visas, etc.
I was just wondering because I have had extra trouble getting some positive feedback from companies that aren't in the US and was wondering if it was because I was American.
Of course it could also be that my portfolio isn't good enough yet - I specialize in modeling and have read that european companies expect artists to handle everything, but I was just curious about foreign hiring concerns...thanks.

We at neo have some experience with hiring people from the US. Generally, it's a very time-consuming process (several months to get a work permit).

When we hire ppl from outside the European community, we make sure they are very good since it's a lot riskier for us.

Thanks for the info. I guess I have to improve my portfolio to the point where there is no risk and no question. It will have to be a future goal. I'll get there someday.
