Thanks again, and thanks for the link.
What is the job application process like in Europe? Similar to the States in that you give them your resume and a sample of your work, then talk with various levels of managers until (hopefully) hired? I suppose it depends on the company structure and cultural setting, but are there any constants you've run into? I remember hearing, in France in particular, companies are very choosy about who they hire given the strength of the unions and laws governing workers' rights that make it very difficult to fire someone.
