Austria is slowly migrating from heavy industries to a more service-oriented labour-market. Luckily, new jobs in the service industry, in marketing and in the information technology sector compensate for other job losses. Austria is strongly supporting entrepreneurs; in fact, it has become very easy to start your own venture.
However, if you are looking for a seasonal job, the easiest way for a foreigner is to lead the research to the tourism sector, especially if you can speak more than two languages.

The deadline to declare your earnings is the 30th of April of the following year in which you worked.
