Getting a job in Europe from Canada
Perhaps it matters whether or not you're a EU citizen (if not there there are presumably visa/work permit issues; or perhaps you want to work as an independent, international business/contractor instead of as an employee).
I'm a canadian citizen and speak English.
Boris, there is Burger Kings in Europe, I always wanted to work McDonalds to get some international experience. Lets switch ;)

Being a commonwealth citizen, if you are under 30 you can get a working holiday visa in the UK, which lasts two years.
It will probably be pretty difficult. Anyone wanting to interview you will have to pay the air fare over for you, and in the current economic situation there would have to be a pretty compelling reason to do that (like, you are one of the top 'n' people in the worldat what you do, where 'n' is a very small number).
The working holiday visa is what a lot of Aussies, Kiwis and Saffas in the UK are on.
Like " " said, get yourself over here first and then hunt for a job. The hiring cycle is normally too quick to be currently-living-abroad friendly. Especially so if you will need a work permit.
Is one of your parents a British subject? If so, then you are entitled to a UK passport, at which point you can work in the EU.
Check out HSMP visas for UK (Highly Skilled Migrants Program). You can apply for one if you're under 28 and, obviously, highly skilled.
"Ireland also has a working holiday visa scheme, although I think it is only for one year. Irish music, women, Guinness and the booming tech sector would make it an ideal first choice."
I believe the quickest solution would be to move to Rumania and get fast-tracked. ;-)
