Recently I got the following request via CouchSurfing
“Hello!greatings from Greece! i am John and i am an Electrical Engineer, specialised in Energy. I m planning to come and stay to Luxembourg for a couple of time looking for job oportunities. In a few words, i am 29 years old, i have a 2 year job experience
Could you give me any information about the Engineers’ market in Luxembourg? Are there any job oportunities in Luxembourg for Electrical Engineers? Do you know someone maybe looking for an Energy Electrical Engineer?
Any information would be helpfull!
With Appreciation, John”
So I thought why not give him a few tips and publish them here too for other (Electrical) Engineers that want to come to Luxembourg.
I am not up to date how it looks on the job market for Electrical Engineers but I know a lot of companies you could contact.
Here is a list of companies that are big and constantly look for new talent:
http://www.creos-net.lu (but I think they are more of an administrative company and dependant of enovos)
http://www.husky.co/EN-US/ (They have a plant in Luxembourg, I know one engineer over there)
http://www.goodyear-dunlop.com/career/ (Tyres but hey they need Engineers too :)
Our Government is actively trying to attract businesses in the Green Tech arena: http://ict.investinluxembourg.lu/ict/electrical-power-and-green-energy
Now I do not know what companies have already moved here but contacting the “Invest in Luxembourg” Team might be a good start.
Just found: http://www.lee.lu/
via this site: http://www.luxembourgforbusiness.lu/green-technology
So this should somehow jump-start your search :)
All in all, if you are talented, motivated and able to communicate well with people, you have a chance.
The major issue you might have in Luxembourg is languages.
We speak: French, German, English, Luxembourgian(yep it’s a language)
If you would speak either French or German (fluently) I would suggest you book your plane ticket now and come over.
If not it is a bit more difficult as you could only work in the big companies as opposed to smaller local ones.
If you have any other questions, let me know.

Diesen Remix hab ich eigentlich nur für meine DJ Sets gemacht, aber ich denke er ist auch so ganz cool…
Vielen Dank für den massiven Support von Planet Radio, MDR-Sputnik, Jan-Christian Zeller (1Live) und natürlich den vielen DJs die meinen Remix gespielt haben.
Da das Download-Maximum erreicht ist, habe ich den Track nun zum Download auf meiner neuen Facebookseite gestellt.

15 Minutes of Bike Fame - RAW sound bite from a Luxembourg City Traffic Cycle Ride.
Written on the 29th of May 2009
Recently I flew out form Frankfurt-Hahn Airport to Pisa, Italy.
It was a real MESS! Apart that you have to take a 2h Bus to the Airport (or pay parking fees, 40€ for 5 days) the cost of the Bus is 32€ Return. (maybe opt for the parking next time, but don’t forget the cost of the fuel)
Once I got there I had only hand luggage BUT it was 2Kilo overweight (10k allowed, 12k in all) I had my Laptop in my Hand and I was forced to weigh that as well! (Damn these CrappleTops weigh a ton)
Seriously, the f*ck?
I suppose next we will have to Pay more if you’re overweight! (And I have very little understanding for people that are Mc’Donalds fat and constantly watch TV)
So I had to check-in my luggage, bang 40€ (I understand the principle of Ryanair but cmon’ I was carrying it in my Hand)
So when I tried to pass the X-Ray again, guess what, well they were not weighing luggage anymore! I guess once they had enough “victims” they closed for the day.
Let me re-cap:
50€ Actual Return Ticket
40€ Excess Luggage
32€ Bus Ticket
16€ Bus Ticket (Yep from Pisa to Florence)
4hours wasted on Bus
Crammed into small seats (read death traps, luckily the chances to survive a Plane crash are close to nil)
138€ plus the grief and wasted time!
Honestly I prefer to stay local then. Ok it is going to be 3 times the price BUT:
At least I can complain!
And in theory I support the Luxembourgian Local Economy.
As you all know we are building a HackerSpace in .lu and one of my main tasks has been to justify the costs of 42€ per Month (for workers, un-employed and students is a different story)
I think I see parallels here. I shouldn’t be so tight and consume outside of my country if the service exists locally. And if you think that flying is too expensive with the Local companies. Well yeah if everyone evades them to save a couple of bucks that would be expected.
And you can always consider - Budget = Low - so skip next expense to finance the one after that.
Anyway I decided to not fly with RyanAir anymore even if I have no Luggage whatsoever and they give me the Ticket for free with an option to sit next to the pilot. In case someone catches me using them again, p4wn me really hard!
(And I didn’t even get into their you have to pay to use the Toilet approach, isn’t that a Human Right? And their talent to recruit cheap labour open companies in eastern countries and let them work in the West)
