Hello! my name is jose fernandez, a spanish citizen from barcelona. I just arrived here in belgium last april 8 and I am here in antwerp to work as an ELECTRICIAN (with my spanish company) at TOTAL REFINERY ANTWERP maybe for a year. At this moment I am staying in a hotel provided by the company. I am looking for an apartment or a house that is good for two persons and stay there until our project is done. Anybody please help and advice me what to do.
P.S. The house should have at least two rooms, and furnished. thank you!

I have graduated with a master’s degree in chemical engineering from the Chemical and Technological University of Sofia, Bulgaria.

Currently I am working as a sales manager at ....., an international oil and gas company. My responsibilities include targeting clients, presenting company products, conducting negotiations and concluding contracts, market analysis and maintaining contacts with clients, reporting.

The reason I am looking for a job in Belgium is that my family has moved to the country as my wife took up a permanent job at the Council of EU as of February 1st, 2012. I am particularly interested in job opportunities in the chemical industry or industrial equipment.

The problem is that I do not speak french.

My name is Louis-Nicolas. I have moved to Brussels for work more than 15 years ago, as jurist specialising in government affairs. I stayed because of the warm welcome, the friends and family (my wife who is from DC, our daughter and a soon-to-be little boy). And also because I still enjoy discovering more about Brussels, its people and surroundings, and because of the ease to travel and visit countries.
