Hello from Asia, everyone :)
I am planning to go to Poland to study, and then find a job to stay there. I really love your country :)
However, I am choosing among these 3 cities: Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw. Would you mind telling me which would be the best choice for a foreigner in terms of WORK OPPORTUNITIES?

PS: I am a English - Chinese speaker, studied Economics :)

Thanks a tons :x

None. It is unlikely that you will be able to find work in Poland either during your studies or afterward. Poland is not a rich country, and jobs are hard to find even for Polish people, who often go to richer countries to find work. In Poland, people with degrees in economics are as common as cockroaches and consider themselves lucky if the can find low-paid jobs like sweeping floors or putting cans on shelves in a supermarket, so even jobs like that will not be available to you.

Also, there is little point in studying in Poland. If you want to study outside of China, then pick a good university in a richer country in northwestern Europe, the English speaking countries or Asia. If you can't afford it, then study in your own country.

Last of all, if you want to work in richer countries, get a useful degree. A degree in economics is essentially worthless. There are already far too many people with economics degrees in the world, and no one needs any more. Go back to school and study a math-intensive field like econometrics, financial engineering, financial mathematics or actuarial sciences. You old enough to know one of the greatest secrets in life: math is money, and no math, no money, honey. Someone should have told you that earlier (actually, lots pf people did, but you just didn't listen).

So now, go back to school and get a serious degree in a serious field that serious employers who pay serious money take seriously on the job market.

In any case, Poland is not a realistic part of your plan.

Dominic, you do not even know what a Shared Service Center is. Please stop giving advice to people about their life planning.

Just because you think that stop to answering questions makes the issue go away does not mean mean it will. You have displayed your lack of knowledge and ignorance in this thread - https://polishforums.com/work/poland-job-opportunities-young-italian-74859/ .

Turning quiet and "sitting it out" does not make your ignorance go away Dominic.

Probably Warsaw - it's the biggest and richest city of the three by far.
Worth mentioning though that a lot of students are chasing a limited quantity of work, so it isn't easy to find.
eh?

Well somehow quite a lot of foreigners ARE finding jobs in Wroclaw, the city has a marked increase in foreign people living and working there. It also gets a mention for SIZEABLE population increase in this article citylab.com/politics/2015/06/incredibly-detailed-map-europes-population-shifts/396497/

Also from today, audio announcements on buses and trams are partly in english I'm told. Thats new for sure.

Not students, and not recent grads. Even Polish students and recent grads have trouble finding work in Poland.

Umm... the red you see around the richer cities in Poland is primarily due to internal migration from poorer rural areas in Poland, especially in the eastern part of the country, rather than foreigners migrating to Poland.

I've noticed that too.

These were certainly students.

I would imagine that every one of them spoke some Polish though.

I found Dominic's answers the same in every thread -_- He is either extremely negative about his country or just wants to shoo everybody away ~~

It's not "his" country, he lives in another continent. This makes his opinions on Poland are irrelevant.
