Austria up to something evil??

Since I'm in Switzerland looking for a job, I've expanded my job search to Germany as well, mainly because their quotas are not as tight (although their salaries generally suck...)...I also looked into Austria, but I rarely find anything related to IT work there, especially not "English speaking jobs".

In fact, I rarely see any jobs posted for Austria, although they have a nation about the same size as Switzerland. I noticed for Germany, they only have half as many IT jobs posted as Switzerland, guessing the economy is worse there.

Typically on job sites I will search just using the key word "SQL" or "SQL and English", the latter helps me sort through the non-English speaking jobs. However, even typing "SQL" almost nothing comes up for Austria.

My question is...how can Austria be so rich, but have so little apparent industry? I have looked at various website, that claims Austria does all sorts of things, but I can't think of any major Austrian companies (unlike Swiss or German) and as stated, there are rarely any jobs advertised on any of the major sites (unlike Switzerland or Germany)...

What is going on in Austria? Are they making money through nefarious means??? Do they have some secret job sites that are unknown outside of Austria?

I skipped the SQL, and used QbE...

Red Bull is Austrian.

It has taken over the world.

Clear evidence that Austria is up to something evil.

Re: Austria up to something evil??

Swarovski and Erste Bank are also Austrian companies.

Obviously it has a huge touristic industry in both summer and winter. As for the industry, it has a well developed industry and is a big trading partner with Germany. It also is invested in heavily by foreign countries because of its great strategic position with respect to Eastern and Southern Europe
