With my language skills and past working experience, I have more chance to find a job in Spain than in Belgium.
My age is also a burden. Employers in Belgium either want people under the age of 25 or over 50 or people registered as a student as they have to pay almost no social security contributions and less tax.
The unemployment rate is Spain has always been very high. Many people claim unemployment benefit and work at the same time.
