Recruiters have gone fucking mad! They are offering me a job in Brussels haha, this is at least a two hour drive away!!

Unless this job comes with a personal helicopter service, hell no!

    Maybe not a helicopter but why not a new flat?

    Or a good home office option (3 out of 5 days). I took a job like that.

    Had some experiences with this too... Mine just was more absurd:

    Hey X, we are XYA company and we would like to offer you an internship after which you could get a job in our INSERT_TRENDY_KEYWORDS XYA company!

    If this sounds like a great deal, please consider replying with these questions answered:

    - Are you able to re-locate? (one was 100km, another around 2600km)

    - Are you able to start within two weeks?

    - Will you be willing to work for 500eur/month in internship and 1000-1500 eur for the first 2 years after it.

    ---

    And surprise surprise - when I asked if they will cover my relocating expenses - I got a big "No, why would they?"

    @potata It's almost too "big" to get angry over it. Insane, haha

    Having worked for a company that's based in Lommel with its office in Brussels, while I live somewhere in between (working from home at the time) I can definitely tell you, that 2 hours is fastly becoming 4... even with a car. (don't have my DL, so when they wanted to force to work from office as a half-timer, I left.)

    That's why my first question is always about full remote work. Surprisingly, a lot of them bend and agree to this one.
