Dear @Drat, as far as I know it is not possible. You must apply for a work visa from your homecountry. Working in France should be possible even during the asylum process, but working in another country not. As I am not totally sure on this issue, I recommend you ask a lawyer or the Luxembourg embassy. Regards mbeon-Ruth

Yes, what if the company is willing to sponsor your work visa? Because I studied in France but due to the crisis in Cameroon I can’t go back. Now, I have had some interesting interviews and the companies are wanting to apply for a work permit for me in Luxembourg. Would that pose any problem?
This is a good question. If the companies are so eager to hire you, let them inquire if it is possible without leaving Europe. There are exceptions in the visa procedure, but I think they are quite limited. Maybe ask a lawyer who is familiar with Luxembourg's foreigner's law (or ask the company to support you in this question).
Yes yes the position doesn’t require me to travel out of Europe to say the least.
