    You will find it very difficult to find work in Turkey. The Turkish authorities take a very dim view of foreigners who try  take jobs from Turkish people. Foreigners usually work as language teachers or representatives for tour/ holiday companies. Sometimes as journalists or on intra company transfers. 

    Non Turk are forbidden from taking jobs in medicine and dentistry.  Foreigners cannot work in a bar, restaurant or a shop. If you are found working illegally you will be fined and deported

    Employers are responsible for applying for the work permit and often fail to do so.

    Baharali you will find it very difficult to obtain a visit visa let alone work in a European country.

    The employment/immigration rules in EU countries require companies to recruit from the EU member states before hiring someone from a non EU country.

    You would also need a very good command of the language of the country you want to work in,
  • how can i get student + work visa for turkey
  • Baharali to study in Turkey you must be fluent in Turkish, even if you attend an English speaking university.

     Perhaps I did not make it clear , unless an employer wants you for a job which a Turkish national cannot do you will not be granted a work permit.
