Excerpted from the Belgium Career Guide
Because Belgians are modest by nature and dislike what may be seen as bragging or arrogance, be careful with how you present your talents and experience in both the CV and the interview. Although some employers prefer to see a one-page summary CV (more like an American résumé), a CV in Belgium normally includes quite a lot of information, including such things as dates of employment, number of people supervised, extracurricular activities, civic or social club affiliations, offices held and a summary of professional goals.
In an interview situation, you should expect rather intense eye contact and a high degree of formality. Address the interviewers by title.
Belgian companies make frequent use of psychological interactive and/or personality tests that should not be approached with a ‘pass/fail’ mentality. The goal is to see if you are a good fit for the position and company, so it is best for everyone to answer as truthfully and completely as possible.
At the conclusion of the interview, most companies will leave some time for you to ask questions. This is an opportunity to show interest, so it is best to prepare a couple of questions.
This is just a short sample of what you’ll find in over 100 pages of information in the complete Belgium Guide.
