What are the dos and don'ts of finding a job in Montenegro?

Hello everyone,

Where is the best place to start when looking for a job in Montenegro? Is it better to job-hunt by directly contacting the company of your interest, or should job-seekers rely on a recruitment agency, for example?

Are there any unique aspects that job-seekers should consider when preparing their CV/résumé and cover letter? Should a photo be included?

Do you have any tips on interview conduct in Montenegro? Are there any particulars, such as greetings or behavioural customs?

In you opinion, is knowledge of the local language or a regional language necessary to successfully apply for a job? What level of the language should job-seekers have mastered?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


First thing to know is that applying for jobs in MN is *nothing* like applying for jobs in the more economically advanced parts of Europe. If there is legislation or common-sense practice on any or all areas of recruitment and selection and employment generally - then Montenegrin employers WILL ignore it.  EU membership - particularly the bit where they have to bring employment practices into the 21st Century - is going to put a lot of employers out of business, and quite rightly too. Modern day slavery is the norm. Be aware.
