It is useful to join the different expat groups living in Hungary, because they share lots of useful information with each other.
On LinkedIn to join the communities of previous schools, workplaces can provide a good opportunity to maintain a shallow but lively relationship within the same professional circle. The function called endorsement can be a tool for recognizing the existing skills and competencies, as a reference. LinkedIn is a professional community, where you may find on one hand the bigger companies’ communities, and bí following them we can get up-to-date information about potential job opportunities, events, etc.
On the other hand every group of profession has its community, and HR companies, job agencies are most likely recruit in these platforms, because they can reach the proper employee quite easily with their calls.
