Register as a jobseeker
For Flanders you can go to the VDAB. You can register via:
Do you live in Wallonia? Then you need to contact Forem (www.leforem.be).
- At the VDAB you can register from January in your final school year.
- At Actiris you can only do so from May in your final year. Register immediately if you interrupt your studies during the year.
- If you remain unemployed for a specific period then you can receive jobseeker’s allowance. You must be registered for this. The faster you do so, the faster you will be eligible for the benefit.
- VDAB and Actiris will support you in searching for a job, you can attend job application courses and they will also search through job vacancies for your profile.
- For how long?
Once you have found a job or once you return to your studies you should best deregister. (Even if it was just a temporary job). To do this you can call the free phone number 0800 30700 (VDAB) or 02 800 42 42 (Actiris).
