How Brussels exploits Europe's high potentials

I would like to draw your attention to a beautiful article by the "EU for US"-blog titled "Finding a job in Brussels":
When there are 20 equally impressive CVs applying for one position, what’s a poor HR manager to do? Now multiply that 20 by 200, and you begin to see how the job market works in Brussels.
That is the food for the machine that exploits Europe's high potentials. And Linda digs through the mud of networks, internships, and the black market, and when you finished reading, you might unpack your bags and stay where you are.

Or, you start digging yourself...

Or you become a freelancer and hence can blissfully carry out your everyday work... Or the servers crash, in which case it's horrid. But at least it's not 200-1!

Linda Margaret has two thought-provoking posts on the same theme. Read them both.
