I was in Argentina as a teacher in an English institute. This, from what I understand, is fairly common in Argentina. I’m looking for the bookmarks I had on teaching English, the program I finally went through was a volunteer program so it wasn’t paid. So it wasn’t actually a job.
I can’t find my old bookmarks, so I did a quick google and clicked on what looked familiar. here’s one that looked promising, http://www.jobsabroad.com/Argentina.cfm
Apparently, they also have craigslist in Bs.As.
try a tefl course if u wanna be a teacher, see if they have any argentinean placements
also when i was in argentina i met a few people who were hanging about waiting for a job, that they had got but ultimately like any other job can take a while to actually come about
try google, it is ace and helped me find some rite good free volunteering placemnts, and one other good option, what ever hostel, hotel etc place u r staying at , ask them if 1) they ave any p/t jobs and 2) ask if they know any job vacanies
hope it helps even tho i ave worked in argentina lol, i dont even no why i was asked .
PS ONELASTTHING! i personallyy found argentina a bit dry but two things saved me, no three!
1 there love of meat i love it
2 they party hours they just party non stop
3 san telmo, my savior of buenos aires
: ) have a brill tyme hope this helps? xx
Hiya I was born in argentina but i live in australia, job availability in baires is directly related to your spanish skill level, having said that, there are lots and lots of english academies that pay native english speakers per hour for “conversational english”. basically you show up and chat to students about whatever takes your fancy or about a designated topic chosen by the teacher.
it doesnt get any easier than that and the pay isnt too bad, i am not a native speaker but my english level was good enough to pass as one when i went to buenos aires. been there in 2003, 04, and 2005, if all goes well ill be back on the 07-08 summer.
It’s very hard.
There are hardly any paying jobs for the natives right now — this is why Argentinians are leaving the country looking for jobs right now.
There are plenty of volunteer jobs — if you are Jewish try using your temple connections.
If you have a college degree and professional skills, try a multinational company with positions in Argentina — tobacco, packaged goods, beverage, QSR’s.
