It's very difficult to get an "ordinary" job in Hungary unless you speak Hungarian.  Just being able to speak English is not sufficient. 

The obvious exception to that rule as a job is teaching English but a lot of jobs would demand multiple languages - English and Hungarian (and nice to have German) are just about the minimum.

Most English speaking expats will have come from places with higher salaries than Hungary, so that makes it even harder to survive on local salaries.

Internationally,  the obvious industries are IT and telecoms or those involving cross border trading like transport or shipping.

Sorry, I can't help with any of these questions.
